The old couch and mattress rotting in the driveway

The stubborn man won’t rent a van expensive
he’ll scissor, ply and snip into wet structures restive.
Springs, wire and things upholstered slowly part and give
leaving cold metal and wood skeleton unalive.

Some neighbours watch the unsightly pile massive
slowly reduce and eyebrows tensely supervisive
turn amused and to glances at that guy subversive
and a bin heavy for services sanitative.
