New Life for Tires

The tires were packed

cheek by jowl in the yard

jagged edges beyond repair

life had been hard

The dump manager

was a petulant man

seeing so much waste

but he had a plan

Using a machine

to grind up the tire

bits tied together

bound by wire

The old rubber

will have new life

becoming garden mulch

blending in with the wildlife

More of the recycled tires

used as playground elements

a much easier landing

than a cheek touching cement

Another use is

a wastewater treatment filter

allowing water to be reused

no longer a killer

Fun to ponder

recycling the strife

the Earth provides alternatives

giving its resources new life
