Boatsports90's Poem Adventures - Recycling

in poetry •  4 months ago

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!

Recycling

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!

haha, I wouldn't be opposed, but my hopes aren't super high

Nice work man! My grandpa once got on me for throwing away a can (I lived in Michigan at the time). "That's worth 10 cents he said?" "It's just a dime," I said. He thought that was funny for some reason. Anyways, yes, we need to do a lot better and recycle. I with states would support/encourage it more.

Thanks! haha, yea it definitely adds up. If a can was worth 10 cents here (VA), I'm sure I'd make more of an effort to recycle. Definitely, I'm sure they will eventually, but hard to tell when.

...and today, I recycle my upvotes in solar energy.
