T-R-A-S-H

Tossed on the ground,
Rejected.
Actually, not recycled.
Silently accumulating.
Have you seen me?

Turtles are choked by me,
Reefs are polluted by me.
Accumulating on your beaches.
Something you did.
How could you miss me?

Towers of me are hidden from you
Right under your nose.
All these times and you ignore me?
Soon enough you can’t.
Have you been there? It’s disgusting.

Tell them about me,
Reach out please.
Achieve better than this.
Show them how to be.
Help clean the earth.
