Toxic Water

The great whale will die,
eating Islands of plastic,
while many don’t care.

In a turtle’s nose,
lodged within a plastic straw,
causing constant pain.

Killing the ocean,
no cares for the future child,
hearts lack devotion.

  1. So sad to write about, even sadder to read it… but most importantly, very necessary to be a voice for those sentients beings that cannot speak for themselves.

    Bravo, dear poet.

      1. You are very welcome. 🙂 If that poem you wrote causes one less piece of garbage being carelessly thrown into a habitat for one of our beloved creatures…. then it is worth it. 🙂
