going with the grain in more than one way ( an anti-plastic poem)

is there a worker in wood available

who isn't busy and out of timber

willing to build for me

( having a large number of fallen trees to make use of)

my very own wooden cabin

my very own wooden furniture

my very own wooden carriage


and continue with that willingness

to then dismantle all he has built for me

when I die

and recycle it by building for me

my very own wood burning funeral pyre

when you think of what uses apart from the ones you have listed all those fallen trees could be put to that in itself is such a waste Leon when they could take the place of non-degradable plastics.Thank you.Jemima

good description Douglas! Rose 😄! Pat and Stef until recently I wasn't aware of the volume of plastic pollution but when I saw the news item showing some of the cluttered beaches in other countries I was absolutely gobsmacked

what does it cost people to simply take their litter home with them? and what does that tell you about their attitudes?

it tells you if you'll forgive my french that they don't give a s***t about dumping their s***t anywhere they like!

tvm all inclusive of the frontline lady in matters such as these (according to some of her blogging's)

the plastic pollution problem is really getting out of hand, but are the manufacturers taking note? we think not. Good work Leon.

A good "comes full circle" poem that I think a lot of people can relate to. Facing mortality.
