PLASTIC BOTTLE SCOURGE by Julia Patten

Smooth, transparent – thrown onto the soil.
Smooth, transparent – carried on the waves.
Smooth, transparent – sitting on the verge.
Smooth, transparent – plastic bottle scourge.

Smooth, transparent – glistens in the sun.
Smooth, transparent – lies upon the ground.
Smooth, transparent – rolls along the sand.
Smooth, transparent – throttles our green land.

Smooth, transparent – refuses to decay.
Smooth, transparent – a killer on the loose.
Smooth, transparent – damages our health.
Smooth, transparent – drowning us by stealth.
