Rubbish World


I wanted to give my children a last glimpse

Of the beauty and treasures hidden on this planet

Yet at times I feel it’s too late.

Four thousand kilometres through the Aztec lands

Past a handful of ancient sites,

hundreds of loud oumpah bands,

thousands of taco stalls and street vendors,

And millions of cactus in all its shapes and forms.

Yet the one big constant has been




Plastic EVERYWHERE we go

Covering the tierras and oceans like a toxic layer

Sparkling deceptively below the blasting desert sun.

Wall-E’s world a reality

If in this country, whereelse?

How to keep my kids away from this

Or better find a solution?

Wake up tribe,

It’s a combined effort.

We need to act NOW.
