Despicable Disposables & Sky Litter

The Lone Balloon

The Lone Balloon - DRD June 2018

SAD… SKY LITTER and plastic waste,
Destroys Wildlife and our Open Space.

Let’s picnic and camp on debris piles,
some places that’s all there is for miles and miles,

The 1st Earth Day, was nearly 50 years ago,
we did get the clean air and clean water act though,
But solid waste has grown even more,
You see piles on the roadsides, forest, and at the shore,
what the Hell was the environmental movement for?

No one it seems really cares,
they do not see their mess land elsewhere,
Out of sight, out of mind,
just leave your inconvenient trash behind.

Release your Celebratory balloons and lanterns into the air.
OH, they’re just fine, they’ll ‘biodegrade’ somewhere…

So that’s what we get and deserve in the end,
It’s only about ‘Global Warming’ / ‘Climate Change’ my friend,
Forget Solid Waste piling up at our front door,
becoming islands in the Oceans and the forest floors. -DRD 6/2018

Let’s not even talk about our Toxic waters and seas,
you know the food and water for you and me – DRD

Please Share to Make Others Aware

Our Trash and Plastics Legacy will not go away anytime Soon,                              We’ve run out of Space, we’ve run out of Room.                                                    Become Aware and Care for the land we all Share, for Our Earth all around.          Our Solid Waste is growing in Leaps and Bounds,                                                      It is causing Our Creatures to ‘Drown’. SAD


Thanks for stopping by.

I hope you join me on my journey, as I recount many things from my past,            and explore the many other creative possibilities in my future. – OmaEagle
