Unnatural Foliage For M'Lady Ernestine

The hedges here are gaily clad
in plastic bags of every hue
This makes me sad and makes me mad.
these cast off carriers spoil the view.
Of all inventions which I curse
created by mans fertile mind.
I cannot think of one that’s worse
than plastic bags folks leave behind.
They are used once then thrown away.
They hang in tatters from the trees
A sight that’s common place today
waving like banners in the breeze.
I really cannot understand
why they are not completely banned.

Wonderful Ivor. It is amazing how you can make such a marvellous poem out of plastic carrier bags. Only you could do it. This is so good and a thoroughly enjoyable read too. I shall put this into my favourites to remind me not to use plastic bags ever again. Thank you so much for this lovely gift, I really must think up something to give you back. He! He!
