Is It only me ?
that feels this way
my thoughts gushing out to sea
without knowing what to say
our world is being flushed
down the sewer drain
water-rat politicians eating leftover crusts
every-time our dying clouds rain
never ending, poisoning of the bays
strangling plastic bags
suffocating polystyrene trays
wrapped in bloody newspaper flags
animals killed by our waste
governments retain their ego for greed
T.V. and press reports, via copy and paste
while our planet’s going to seed
are we trying our best ?
for the creatures in need
stop, this shitting, on our own nest
how much more can the oceans bleed ?
