Covered over in golden just fallen leaves,

Still its there by the odor, oh geez,

Hidden from sight in the fall it is,

Taking a deep breath nearby could give you the heaves…

 

Grass grows even in winter cold,

Fertilizer below & a lot of mold,

Most tanks they pump out, this one uncontrolled,

If it weren’t so open, I could really grow some gold…

 

So live with it I do,

The smell reminds me of past low tides,

I just hesitate to go near it without my shoes,

My yard is a sewer, but then again where else should I live,

Dirty white trailer trash, am I, to the surrounding homes,

An odor I do daily give…

JOISEY ...

HELL, DUDE - ONE LIL SEPTIC TANK? I LIVE ACROSS THE STREET (ABOUT 1/2 MILE) - FROM THE BALTIMORE 'WASTE TREATMENT' CENTER - SHIT FROM ABOUT A 1/2 MIL OF SHITIZENS!

IN THE SUMMER, CAN SMELL THE 'FRAGRANCE OF FLATULENCE' A MILE AWAY, ON THE BELTWAY.

AS 'TRAILER TRASH' MESELF, ALSO - I CAN EMPATHIZE!

JASMINE'S RIGHT - PLANT SOME 'MARY JANE' - GOOD 'SHIT' SHOULD GROW WHERE GOOD 'SHIT' IS!

PIECE! TK ...

I'd say you're more like an urban alfalfa farmer. Get a goat. Farmer Ed, has a nice ring to it. Oh, and I know about septic tank odor when the air cools down in the fall, hot water I think gets it venting away. Then again it could be one of your radioactive hot bombers setting things off. Patrick

Tiptoe through the Cesspool - wasn't that an old Tiny Tim song??!!

Now if you were a political party, you could spead it around. I know of a certain weed, about six foot tall, that would quickly solve the problem, for it needs lots of nourishment, and would soon deminish the effluent, growing the gold you are talking about, you'd be adding to the environment, tell them you belong to the green party, and that it be your very own private forest. One decent years crop, and you could all that shit behind right.
Bless ya! Jasmin Horst

Well at least after all that sealing, wrapping and taping of your cave, you should have sealed out some of those odors. You should be good to go until spring.... Dick
