Hymn of the Tire Hunter

Nashwaak
Biff tackles a tire on the Nashwaak

I talk of tires all the time,
folks say I'm a crashing bore.
Little do they know that I'm
a voracious rubbervore.

I prowl the shallows and the banks
up and down the shore.
I have no need of praise or thanks,
nor fame for evermore.

I rid the waters of the tires
thrown in by folks long gone.
It's hard to say just what inspires
me to carry on.

I only know that I won't rest
until the last and lonely tire
no longer lingers to infest
our lovely Saint John River.

Biff poses with the excavated tire before adding it to the recycling pile. It will be trucked to a tire recycling plant in Minto, New Brunswick.
