We live in a plastic world
Where discards outweigh utility,
Where garbage pollutes air, land and sea
And everything is temporary;
Nature must take a back seat
‘Cos man has learned to manipulate
Greens and meat and all we eat.
Plastic, cardboard used once
Then tossed away. Society tells us
How to think, act and re-act,
Fit the parameters or be a mis-fit,
Clones of idEAlised/idOlised
Specimens of humanity don’t stir the pot,
Blow the snot where it lands –
Out of sight, out of mind.
