WHOOPS - WARNING forgot LANGUAGE CODING

 

 

 

 

a styrofoam cup

my time is not up

long gone the

factory that gave

me birth

been here

packed tight in earth

for five hundred years

lying whole

in the land of the mole

my permanent berth

let me give feminists

if not environmentalists

hope

I hear up there

there's the world's

first female pope

but she still

won't sanction the pill

what a fuck up

say I the cup

in my crater

c u later.

 

for Earth day

It took me two readings but THEN I got it. What personification! Despite the message I think you might have had fun writing this.

LOL, you beat me to it Frank. I was going to try and dream up something for the 22nd day using Earth Day as the theme, but no one could top this poem. Perfect !
