The legend of Trashcan Kittman is a cautionary tale
Be careful where you keep your heroes is what they used to say
Trashcan had a glittering career, an array of accolades but his fame took root somewhere deep inside of him, all the world was his stage
And how his ego grew, entertaining teens in bathrobes and everybody knew
But no one spoke so the legend grew. Whispers and mutterings behind the scenes, like a festering mold it grew and grew.
Trashcan, method man, the reviews still cooed, but eventually word of mouth like a super volcano blew, and then the world sang out.
