Plastic plastic everywhere

The food we eat, the clothes we wear

It chokes our oceans, poisons the fish

Haute cuisine, itโ€™s in the dish

No sacred space no mind to pay

We buy today, then throw it away

Accumulation before the cost

Too blind to see until all is lost.

Thank you. Colin. Kept it short as it's a topic I could go on and on and on about ๐Ÿ˜Š

Someone had to write about it, and this is a well decent poem about such a hot topic.

ah well done Carol - I knew you had a plastic poem in you!

Graham's 'Hooligulls' has got me thinking on a slightly different tack. If it comes to anything I'll post it. Bizarrely your first line had me thinking of Tommy Steele's Water Water song and the 10" LP that I was given as a kid - one of the first I ever owned - The Tommy Steele Story.

I best stop waffling before my comment becomes longer than your poem! All the best, Col.
