Last night I confessed
to my friend, “I’m obsessed,”
(when she came round my house for some tea)
“’bout the stuff in my bin
and the world we live in;
and I want to go #plasticfree.”
She said “what… #noplastic?
Well, that sounds fantastic.
If you want I can join in too.
We’ll do #PlasticFreeLent,
help the #environment
and use cups made of glass or bamboo.”
“Yes, we’ll #breakfreefromplastic;
it wont be that drastic.
We’ll use hessian bags when we shop.
And tell @asda and @tesco and @aldi and the rest – o
that #singleuseplastic must stop.”
“And, yes, we will vow”
(It was my turn now)
“to make #plastic a #MortalSin.
#Biodegradable = #hero,
# nonrecyclable = #zero;
and only heroes get to go in my bin.”
And we chatted excitedly
well into the night (edly?),
and at dawn I said “I know who
might know the solution
It’s #greenpeace so, tell me. Do you?”
