Hunting for treasures is a surefire win.
You never know what you may get,
A rug, a shelf or a TV set.
Toys, furniture and tires are nice,
Believe me man you can’t beat the price.
Seek and find to your hearts content,
Score a garden rake though slightly bent.
Hunt though trash bins and the like;
You may even find an old mountain bike.
All day long they hunt for big prizes,
In anticipation their blood pressure rises.
The searches can yield a lot or a little,
One time all that was found was stale peanut brittle.
They come from near and they come from far,
And load your trash into their overstuffed car.
Until next time when they all come to pillage,
Big trash day in our little village.
