Keep Our Town CLEANC.L.E.A.N.

(A poetic story of a grass roots Environmental Organization)

by  Bobbi Mastrangelo

The litter grew by leaps and bounds

No one cared to keep the grounds,

Something must be done: just look around,

So a group came together, from all over town.

CLEAN Bear Sweeping

Each person adopted just one spot.

Raked and cleaned a littered lot,

Planted flowers with tender care

Everyone noticed a town so fair.

Brooms, rakes and flowers: logo for CLEAN

Tall, friendly mascot joined the scene.

Clean Bear with fur white as snow

Urged the children to “Join the show!”

Clean Bear with Flowers

The pictures they drew and their stories too

Showed their elders what to do:

“Stop littering and beautify our town!”

Their pride began to spread around.


A news reporter coined the name C.L.E.A.N.

(Committee for Litter Elimination And Neatness).
