PROMPT: One Home

1
Tide down, he’s all tied up,
bound by noxious waste.
Another victim claimed,
an exhibit of our harm.
Ruins of mankind:
digested by our being.

Bare water, a bear in water,
swimming for her life.
then,
only Silence.
...and the breaking of waves.
Wildlife of the Arctic:
melting into graves.

Buy this, made by them!
tainted morals of corporations.
All life
suffocated
by a thickening smog.
A constant flow of emissions-
poisoning every breath.

We must top this Toxic Waste
that is spilling into our history.
