Let's Try Ditching

Let's ditch a poly bag.
Let's ditch a poly bag.
Yes, you heard it right,
Whether it's a straw,
A cup or a plate, 
Whether it's bottled water or a polybag
All land in a landfill
And finally in the ocean.

Using these is like scratching
Our earth all over her body.
So, let's ditch a poly bag
Let’s get rid of the plastic bag.
Do it by saying no to the vendor.
Show him your grace,
By producing a cloth bag.

No! Not that,
I didn't say that.
You got it wrong.
I know you are aware, 
And carry your bag,
But don't you stuff it
With so many plastic bags?

Let's think! Let’s think the matter again,
And try ditching that cursed bag.
Fill your bag with the fruits and the veggies,
And the Chocolate and the cookies.
Just without that poly bag,
Let’s abandon that poly bag. 

I promise, I promise, 
They won't eat one another. 
Yes, they’ll get mixed.
But it hardly matters.
You can manage, we can manage.
Coz’ that really matters. 
We cannot poison are Mom,
In the name of convenience.
Can you? Can you? Can you? 
No, none of us can. 

I understand,
The vendor will not listen,
Will give you a smile with question,
He may laugh at you,
Strange looks may follow,
As if you are an alien.
But you will have to do this.
You will have to refuse and produce a cloth bag.
Not for me and not for yourself,
But for the coming generation.
For you love your mother earth. 
And coz’ you are enlightened.

So,
Sow a seed of ‘No’
A ‘No’ not please anyone.
A ‘No’ just to show your gesture.
That you love yourself and the people around.
Remember! This is going to help. 
Don't forget! every ‘No’ from your side is going to help.

Now, I have done my part, 
It’s time, to show your heart.
