Mega-Mega Plastic - Poem by Lovina Sylvia Chidi

Plastic plates, plastic cups, plastic bottles, plastic bags
Plastic toys, plastic jewellery, plastic clothing, plastic phones
Plastic straws, plastic stationery, plastic tools, plastic gadgets
Let's make this rhyme
Plastic is an environmental crime

Mega-Mega Plastic
Isn't it so very tragic?
Mega-Mega Plastic
The impact of global plastic
Mega-Mega Plastic
Isn't it so very drastic?

A dead whale's stomach with 50 bags of plastic
A continent made of plastic in the pacific
Rivers, oceans and lands buried with billions of plastics
Well I state this without being sarcastic
Not all plastic is recyclable some are just static
The seafood now feed on what is artificially elastic

Mega-Mega Plastic
Everywhere are megabytes of plastic
Mega-Mega Plastic
Everywhere are terabytes of plastic

In all places there is plastic
And I am not being melodramatic
Once plastic was bombastic and fantastic
In the pacific there are billions of plastics
On each continent are billions of plastics
All wild sea life will eventually consume plastic

Mega-Mega Plastic
Plastic is no longer romantic
Mega-Mega Plastic
Plastic pollution is globally graphic
Mega-Mega Plastic
The only place left intact may be the Attic

Once the World felt plastic was full of magic
Today we are not feeling plastic enthusiastic
We all sense the plastic pollution in panic
Everything about this substance is erratic

We live in a society that is democratic
And many of our laws are bureaucratic
That make mass production of plastic automatic
And there is absolutely nothing that is charismatic
About the global appetite for of all types of plastics

Mega-Mega Plastic
Isn't this problematic?
Mega-Mega Plastic
Plastic is not magic
Mega-Mega Plastic
Isn't this pathetic?
