Gasoline, Not Plastic

You made the decision,
I made the choice,
The choice for you to hear my voice,

I'm gasoline, not plastic.
Petroleum, not glass.
Coal, not paper.

I'm not reusable or recyclable,
I'm nonrenewable and nonreturnable.

I'm not amazing, but fantastic.

I'm gone and not coming back around,
You called me recyclable,
And truly, I'm not.
