Large truck behind me had big hook and ladder.
Bigger truck behind that one
sported bulky bin-box,
and might well have said,
had they been fighting cocks:
“oh, big hook and ladder,
your size doesn’t matter;
I’ll pummel you into my box!”

But the poor box had rank rust
and much peeling paint;
“Recycle or Bust!” it may well have said;
that big box truck would run
with oxide its taint
‘til the DOT declared it dead.

So what was that boxy-assed truck’s sad taint?
Well, aw, shucks
I’d bet ya ten bucks
It was covered with LEADED paint.
