Energy you say?

I love raking leaves in my front yard, but when I get to the public sidewalk surrounding my property, no so much. That’s because I have to deal with all the litter from the school kids who catch the bus on the corner. I have to pick it all up before I can go ahead and rake.
There’s typically a lot of candy bar wrappers, the occasional cigarette pack, a soda car or two, maybe a water bottle. And earlier today, an empty bottle of 5-Hour Energy.
Five hours’ worth of energy, I thought, but not enough to take the bottle and put it in a recycling container.
Wish they made 5-Hour Social Responsibility.
