Image from journey to the plastic ocean
Tidal waves of jettisoned plastic
Overwhelm glorious golden sand.
Thoughtlessly discarded bottles
and single-trip bags
spawn a shameful, coastal wasteland.
Sinister flows of toxic outfall
ooze from here, to the ocean’s despair.
Fragments of micro-plastics
swirl endlessly among fish,
who feed on this cynical harvest
In another yield from the deep,
bright crystals of table-salt
are likewise pervaded
which we then ingest.
So might wisdom commend,
a STOP PLASTICS approach?
