This poem was requested by and is dedicated to @josefinemk. I have to be honest, I have never been one to recycle religiously, so this poem was good for me to think about and write!
When I was young my grandma would save cans
I kept the money so I was a big fan
We never really did it for the environment
But now the situation is almost violent
Our resources are not unlimited
So we should be a little more disciplined
Think twice before tossing that trash
And it doesn’t help, turning it to ash
Reduce, reuse, recycle is what they say
Let a recycling company take it away
You could even reuse the same bottle for water
Think of the the cute little sea otter
We are only graced with one earth
Take a second, and think what it’s worth
It might not kill us in the future soon
But it’s going to pop, just like a balloon
Society will be pissed if they have nothing left
If we use it all up, it’s basically theft
Do it if it makes you feel good
But for our children’s children, you know you should
I hope y'all enjoyed it! Next up will be @beat-the-bookies request about gambling, which I am definitely looking forward to. I am still open to more suggestions. Give me a topic and I'll do my damnedest to write a poem for you. It can literally be about anything - happy, sad, funny, depressing, whatevs. If you want a personal poem or something specific, please be sure to give me enough information or anything that you would want included. Hopefully this will catch some speed and a lot of people will want their very own personalized poem. If my poem meets your standards, then all I ask for is a resteem to spread the joy. Thanks for reading and let's hear some ideas!
