Congratulations, the place is yours.
Every plastic bag, drifting through the breeze,
abandoned.
Every crisp packet, dropped carelessly,
neglected.
Every soupy sea, choked with plastic bottles,
foaming.
Every soda bottle, peppering the beach,
stranded.
Every animal, who mistakes your rubbish for
food.
Congratulations, the place is yours.

    "Congratulations, the place is yours."
    Insightfully bitter. I love the repetition, making the first and last lines the same. Genius. I also enjoyed how you used different examples of how humans are destroying the world. Once again you deliver a short and simplistic piece, packing it with power and strength. Amazing job!
