What difference could it make?

What difference could it make?

Dropping a plastic bag,

Leaving a plastic straw,

Throwing away old clothes?

They’ll just flutter away,

Out of sight,

Out of mind.

They will travel

Towards the sea.

And be swept away.

A fish may come closer,

A turtle is curious,

A seal just wants to swim.

The fish gets entangled,

The turtle gets wrangled,

The seal gets trapped.

Dropping a plastic bag,

Leaving a plastic straw,

Throwing away old clothes,

What difference could it make?

  1. Well written and good to note your concern for the environment. A poem on the ocean soup would be a befitting sequel.
