Our oceans are polluted with non-recyclables

Plastic versus Tumbleweed 5-7-5

by Mark D. R.

Unlike tumbleweed,
plastic in our vast oceans
doesn't recycle.

Environmental Damage writing prompt entry
Writing Prompt

Write a POEM in any style, up to 30 lines in length, about a situation of damage to our environment, anywhere in the world. Could be wildlife, landscape, population etc. Unfortunately, there is so much to choose from. Be a spokesperson for awareness.

Tumbleweed may go round and round and may somehow disappear into the distance. The trash in our oceans never will disappear or get naturally recycled. It takes hundreds of years for plastic bottles to decompose in our oceans. And, the sunlight on the same just heats the ocean waters unnaturally.
