Litter Me This

Cruising down the interstate
Sadly woes
Wood, cardboard and paper
Alongside the road

A tearful Indian
Comes to mind
Put in bags
Give it time

Won’t be long
As humans go
It will all be back
Don’t you know

Retribution Is as fleeting
Some can’t stop
With all the littering!

Lots of layers to this one...for me. Literally, the destruction of the land with its back and forth. Figuratively, the consuming of our souls and heritage.

I'm proud to know you George... :-)

Thanks Carol. Yes what do we as human give up in exchange of insensitivity and carelessness. Those who contaminate our own nature and worlds.

You really are awesome, as everyone else has said. This is a beautiful poem, and it brings out many emotions in me. I cannot stand to see people litter. I just don't understand it. I used to take my daughter to a park to feed the ducks, and we would get so upset to see plastic bread bags floating in the water. People would bring plastic bags of bread to give the ducks...then throw the bags in the water!! They usually came with their children, and I often thought about what kind of lesson they were teaching their kids. Shew! Sorry to rant. Your poem certainly brings out powerful emotions! Great work!

P.S. - I'm sorry it took me so long to link you, but I have you up there now. I didn't mean to take so long...just a crazy week. Thanks much.
