Nowdays people make such a fuss
Over stuff like detritus
Myself, I would have to agree
We don’t act environmentally
Everything is packaged in plastic
Trying to undo makes you drastic
For scissors or hammer
Not very glamorous
But seriously, my hands are old
And with this weather, usually cold
Resulting in opening those zip locked containers
Well you’d think it would be a no-brainer
Frustration sets in on minutes fifteen
When trying to open this clear canteen
Supposedly easy and convenient to handle
I may have to light a serenity candle!
Meditation over a plastic bag
You ask, what’s with this old hag?
It’s simple enough to open the bag
Maybe it’s patience she seems to lag
But everything bottled or wrapped
Packaged and/or vacuum packed
Causes way too much trash
Even adds to spending your cash.
I hope for kids’ sake we’ll start to conserve
And give them a world that they deserve.
