I’m socially responsible,
I pick up my dog’s waste.
I tie it up in plastic bags
Which into bins are placed.
From there they’re dumped into big trucks
And shipped outside of town,
Where they’re emptied into landfill pits
And buried in the ground.

Future archaeologists
May develop many theses
To try to come to understand
The history of our species;
But whatever ambiguities
In the data that they crunch,
They’ll know with crystal clarity
What my dog had for lunch
