Plastic Soup

We are all creators
We designed
the most ingenious instruments
to facilitate
our wonderful modern society
We created
enchanting art in all its forms
to stimulate
our inner beauty

We also created
a plastic archipelago
in the Great Pacific
Marine debris
has been floating together
until islands arose
Islands made out of plastics
Slowly disintegrating in
little particles which
are eaten by all kind of sea life
as we again eat
the delicious seafood ourselves

Another milestone
we have created a destructive
lethal environmental pollution
Unique as our species is,
we can make it all possible
Establish what no other living
being has ever done before
Yes, we can do it all!
