Gods of plastic,
credit
and
trash,
consumer
world wants
to exist!
There is NO
place for
second-hands...
We're urged
to buy,
unwrap and
bin;
"USE ONLY
ONCE!"
All that litter
piled in our
heads,
who gives
a damn?
Empty beer cans,
bottles,
barrels - all
shapes,
sizes...
polystyrene,
multicolour -
milk from
Safeway,
Japan
or
Greece...
rings of
condoms -
plastic reigns
king!
All THAT beauty
comes
floating
free every
spring
tide, with
miles of
nets
strangling
our birds
before
courtship...
WOW,
Durex's safe!
...Even fulmars
swallow our
greed,
just take
a look at their
stomachs.
Believe your
eyes, it's
disgusting!
...Time to
clean up -
and keep our
cards in
our wallets to
keep our
greed
and
figures
DOWN.
