Waste

You leave it for someone else

Your plastic that infiltrates the sea

That poisons the lives of the fish

Aquatic life swimming below

I see you don’t care yet what if

That poison comes to your table

What then?

When it’s too late to take back

The waste you left behind

Because it harmed your child

Wife, husband, sister, friend

When you have hastened our end.

I have written since I can remember, devouring the stories of Roald Dahl under the covers by torchlight. I have always loved fairy tales, myths and magic. A good deal of the things I write has some truth in it. Others, not. I’m pleased you dropped by, please feel free to leave me a comment or if you’re kind enough to share that’s fine. ☺️
