WALKABOUTSVERSE 92 OF 230

Poem 92 of 230:  PLASTICS

Plastics, we so often hear
    In environmental fear,
Are non-biodegradable
    And, wrongly disposed, horrible.

But this (plus reuse) is the key,
    And there’s the costing side to see -
To some become available
    Goods otherwise unpayable.
And further pros occur to me -
    E.g., replacing ivory.
