Environmentalist

A Poem

New Season, claimed the gray-hair-ing man from the California coast on his wife’s 60th. Overlooking ocean waves, Fish Graves, Full of plastic bags on the horizon. They’re illegal in California now. The man had recently looked into composting toilets for their lakehouse in East Texas. Too expensive. Too expensive to do the right thing. Too expensive to do the wrong. Energy in the Southeast wants donations to add renewable energy to the grid. They’re waiting on feasibility studies, To prove it’s worth doing? Willful stubborn stupidity astounds me. For a fee we’ll consider not polluting our customer’s air. For a fee. We’ll give you Duke’s Energy, but not the right to breathe freely.
