Sometimes, we fail to think about the affect our actions have on our environment. Sometime during the early 1980’s a churchgoer in Sweden forgot to shut the hatch of the churches’ tower. Who would have predicted the result?…

STOCKHOLM — A hatch on a Swedish church tower inadvertently left open for some three decades resulted in 2 tons of pigeon droppings amassing in the tower.

Lennart Helzenius said on Thursday that church staff had been shocked by the sheer number of bags of excrement cleaners were removing from the tower. He says the droppings filled 80 bags in the first round of cleaning, and then just as many in the second round.

Helzenius says the hatch had probably been left open since the 1980s.

Accused and tried and told to hang
I was nowhere in sight when the
Church bells rang
Never was the kind to do as I
was told
Gonna ride like the wind before I
get old
