Thanks to Laila, one of our supporters, for sharing her original poem on plastic pollution with us.
No time to waste.
Our world’s a mess!
Sir David’s prophesied
Ignore it, many more will die!
SUP. Single Use Plastics,
We must do something Drastic!
Millions hemmed in by obnoxious rubbish,
Plastic swims where there should be fish!
Toxic air repels the fresh
Pollution particles trapped in the mesh.
Plastic makers have no shame
We have every right to blame.
Their consciences have been seared
Sleeping at their jobs we feared
Wake Up! Wake up!
So many creatures cry out in pain,
Since Sin came in
Beauty and Colour,
From every parade
Mess and Mess in every shade!
Loss and dross
Now we ponder and wonder oh
Where will it all go?
No longer able to reuse
Our world has been badly abused!
Polyethylene and polystyrene
Polycarbonate and acrylic,
All the synthetic plastic Polymers, now, we need stronger measures
The Earth screams out to Mother Nature,
How saddened is our Father, Creator.
