THE GREAT GARBAGE PATCH - A POEM


Plastic wrappers, ropes and, lids,

Plastic bags and toys for kids

Plastic straws and forks and knives,

All long to live quite different lives.

They dream of tangling birds and whales

Of tying up a dolphin’s tail!

Or, when broken into bits like peas

Ending up as fishes’ teas.

Plastics want to join the band

Of plastic stuff from every land

That’s rolled in currents far from shore,

Where they can live for ever more.

So don't let plastic things get free

Or they will end up in the sea

And kill sea creatures very dead,

Recycle all that stuff instead. or rather better I think Do without that stuff instead
