Ode to The Wheelie Bin
85 year old Mavis Trainer has written a poem about Ealing's rubbish saga
As D day (or should that be W day) approaches for Ealing's new bin service, some local creativity is emerging from beneath the many, many complaints.
Mavis Trainer, 85 (as pictured matching the blue of her recycling bin ) was so inspired by the ongoing saga she has put pen to paper and written a poem.
It's been posted by her neighbour on Facebook and has already received a hugely positive response from locals who've described it as 'brilliant', 'very funny' and have applauded Mavis for 'capturing the Ealing zeitgeist' with her 'tongue in cheek' wit.
Mavis has kindly given us permission to share her poem here.
Excitement overwhelms me
But when the happy day arrives
There's another consideration
I hope in time we'll get it right
Is this the council's cunning plan
It's not the first tongue in cheek response to the wheelie bins...Earlier this year another Ealing resident used social media and almost convinced everyone that the council was changing its logo from a tree to a wheelie bin.
And to avoid any further confusion (*!) you can check which bin goes out first next week here
