The Plastic Sea

PROMPT: Water Body

It was the time of year again

hot, sweaty, and bothersome

Freedom seemed like a bargain

The beach was my only savior 

The sea was as big as ever

seagulls soared high above us

population was low however

Even so, stench was a disgust

I ran to the see

As my way there I saw a man

He threw a can into the see

Wait isn't that banned?

I ran along

I flinged myself to the see

But, there  was something wrong

Well how could this be!

5 plastic bottles in the sea

10 cans of soda in the sea

The animals wouldn't breath

nor would I enjoy the sea

My parents say

dont worry about it

but how could I not 

When the life before me 

is at risk

pick up after yourself

and for yourself

    Great message, I couldn't agree more! The carelessness of people sometimes about earth is horrific, they seem to lack the knowledege that what we have is a good thing, so we should cherish it, not abuse it. You do seem to have a few spelling errors here and there, but its still a really good piece! I'd be happy to do a review for you, if you want me to point the errors out for you :)
