"The Garbage Issue"

Epic #65, May 1990 ($1.00)
"No matter what you eat or do-
The following is always true.
You finish up and in a flash-
You look around and notice trash.
It often seems a little queer-
How garbage tends to just appear.
One minute, there's no need to sweep-
Then suddenly, it's ankle deep.
But sadly, all this old debris-
Just doesn't go as easily.
A storm will up and blow away-
But garbage tends to stay and stay.
And some say if you let it lie-
It only starts to multiply.
And pretty soon, the trash will breed-
And you'll have more than you could need.
So if you don't know what to do-
Then live and learn from watching Groo.
He has a head for trash, we've found-
(Or maybe, other way around)."

"Eliminate a problem before it eliminates you!
The End (unless we do something about it)"
