Banning Plastics




One-use straws and cutlery

Great things this knife/fork pair

Churn them out in thousands

It’s wasteful? I don’t care


You can’t recycle them? Who cares

Dump them in the ground

Microbes in 10,000 years

Will break the buggers down


You say the government has just

Banned them? Shit, how mean

Looks like I gotta change my ways

And metal things now clean


South Australia has now banned the use
of single-use straws, cutlery and stirrers
