What Is This? - Poem by SALINI NAIR

The era is 6000 AD
Last millennium silence was the ruler
Some new islands shaped in time
Now here exist few
They are keen to explore the past
They start to trench the past

Once life was here any way
How all vanished and emptied
Though asked to the near
Its fatigue that controls his brain
They trench the ocean
They dig the land and audit the air

Mine the land and find many things
Dig sea and find fossils
Examine air and they name molecule
They calculated and interpreted
Every where some common thing
What is this?

Fossil sells are huge in size
Some colorless polymer everywhere
""It's plastic"""
They locate the name in some plastic hub
They frightened
Its plastic, plastic everywhere

In sea
In air
In space
In land
In fossils
Even in stomach of fossils! ! ! !
They interpret

Our past perished due to the uncontrollable usage of plastic and allied things
