Baby Albatross the Plastic Death

baby albatross has a hungry belly
parent albatross
returns back to their nest
after skimming the ocean surface for food
parent regurgitate fish and colorful plastic too
into babies mouth
the albatross family dies
the slow death of discarded
plastic convenience
maybe evolution will someday
bless the birds and amphibians
with breasts and mothers milk
when this happens the only critters
with plastic in their mouth
will be humans and their babies sucking down
nestle formula through a plastic nipple
and adult babies sucking down coffee drinks
through a plastic straw
