(an environmental baddy)
Flapping in a sunny breeze
while snagged upon some road-side trees
those plastic carry-bags can trick us
looking like some witches knickers.
Light and strong they fly away
like parachutes on windy days
to reach the sea and float as if
they’re some weird kind of jellyfish.
They’re made from poly-ethylene.
Environmentally NOT green!
Their hydrogen and carbon chains
aren’t broken down by sun or rains.
Thin and tough they bend and flop.
Ideal for using when we shop.
But eco-systems do not share
our love for witches underwear!
