Look at me!!
at the top of this tree
it took a while to latch on
and show my dominance
but now I am here to stay
me and my plastic army
ubiquitous carrying books, groceries
shirts, candy, and other junk
they can easily carry themselves!!
And I have them all fooled
they hand out bags because
they feel like if they don’t
it isn’t good customer service
Brilliant!! I couldn’t have thought of that one myself.
Look at me soar
the tops of trees display
my rightful place
I can’t be thrown away, disappeared and therefore stopped
I feel sad for those sea creatures I choke
but I guess that’s the price they pay for convenience
plus I can be re-used, and re-used, and re-used,
and re-used, and re-used, and re-used
heck, I’ll probably outlast the user
think of that!! my own plastic planet
wouldn’t that be great
except whose stuff would I carry then? I mean… I might get bored?!
Hmmm, I need to re-think this plan
the answer is probably up here somewhere
in the upper realm of the ether
blowing in the wind
