Rubbish Glastonbury Poem

They said leave no trace,
But you can’t be arsed
Cos you are off your face.
You’ve been partying for days,
But look at the state of this place.

An abandoned evacuee camp;
They came, they trashed, and they left.
All the litter for the pickers.
All the tat for the tatters.
All the food for the seagulls.

All the boots in the car parks,
In almost every parking space.
All the trolleys broken in the race
To be first out the gates,
While the land fills up with our disgrace

You make up lies to soothe you
Like we can recycle, upcycle, re-use.
Make a thousand go carts
Out of all the spare parts
And send them to migrants.

With sleeping bags, roll mats,
Cookers and camping chairs.
Your dirty shoes and his muddy flairs,
Oh how little Jamil will love wearing that pirate suit
When the soldiers come and aim to shoot.

Someone will pick up the bits,
Cool boxes full of piss,
Who the hell does a fucking shit,
In the middle of their tent?
A steaming monument to represent
the level of descent they underwent.

It’s not rocket surgery,
You were potty trained in nursery,
But you can buy more with your college bursary,
Buy one get one free in our disposable society
People are starving in a time of austerity,
And lunching out your stuff ain’t donating to charity,
So lets’s get some clarity …

I s’pose I shouldn’t really complain,
Every year I get a tent upgrade,
And the occasional new pair of Hunters
But have you seen the shit all these munters
Leave behind?

All the punters are knackered by Monday.
So why don’t they pack up on Sunday?
Put your stuff in the lock up
Party all night, ready to go at sun up
You can sleep on the bus.

They said leave no trace,
But you can’t be arsed
Cos you are off your face.
Been partying for days,
But look at the state of this place.
