Plastic Unfantastic


The currents and Swells in the Andaman Sea Bring Excess Plastic to the Beaches of Ko Lanta.

Photo. James. G. Brennan.

The overbearing plastic reality
Laid out before me
Like some horror movie filling my
Heart with dread.

Permeating the beauty on this beach
With an ugly heartless soul,

This soul of human development
For a greedy corporate dream.

No end in sight to stop this blight,
Our oceans choke they scream.

The currents have been bringing up an unusual amount of plastic from Malasia and Indonesia to Thailands coastal region. Thailand is also very guilty of plastic waste in the seas of course.

Thank you for reading. J.

Plastic Unfantastic was originally published in ILLUMINATION on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.
