Plastic takes forever to decompose

Piece of metal,
Man shaped.
Roll out dough.
Push Metal Man in,
Like a robot.
Over and Over.
Every winter,
Over and Over.

Now the Metal Man
Sticks out
Of the
Trash can.
Peeking at the
New “Metal Man”.
Cookie cutter ways
Same as the first.
But
Plastic this time.

Really cool poem. Loved the idea. Inspiration is great like that. It was a bit choppy, couldn't really find a rhythm, like if I were to read it out loud I'm not sure how it would sound. But it's not bad. Keep it up :)
