ODE TO DuPONT
Plastic, plastic everywhere - it's in our food and drink.
We drown in seas of plastic - and no one seems to think,
That anything is really wrong - it's plentiful and cheap.
Well, you're drowning in it, darlings - and the plastic sea is deep.
You put it in your body, and you wear it in your clothes,
You cook, and sleep and walk on it - it's in your pantyhose.
You chew it, and you drink it - and you paint it on your walls,
You ride on it, you sit on it - and vinyl coat your halls.
Plastic-coated tables - vinyl covered chairs,
You drink your coffee in it - and plastic tread the stairs.
It steals away your life-force - plastic's NOT a gift,
They're selling it to US, to use - now, do you get my drift?
We deal with plastic people - with plastic masks and smiles,
Plastic fills your houses - in stores, it lines the aisles.
It drains you of your energy - your strength it saps away,
"I simply do not FEEL good" - you repetitively say.
It messes with our brain waves - it tends to make us sick.
Our homes are made with plastic now - at one time we used brick.
While they still eat with silver - we use their styrofoam,
They scream about recycling - but, THEY pollute the loam.
These makers of the plastic - the price they'll one day pay,
For what they've done to man and Earth - just WAIT 'til Judgment Day.
When God will judge the nations - their riches won't prevail,
For plastic goods they've sold us - you'll hear them weep and wail.
In the interim, beloved - 'til God burns up the tares,
Let's deplete their coffers - just DON'T BUY THEIR WARES.
We managed rather nicely - without their plastic stuff,
Let them KEEP their merchandise - until He cries "ENOUGH!"
