EARTH vs HUMANITY

The thrift shop crusader—

—metal straw sword,

tote bag shield—

battles to defend home

whilst you sit in the audience

soggy.

Mother Earth’s death certificate: signed.

A pair of jeans and a tee requires a kilo of cotton.

A kilo of cotton requires 20,000 litres of water.

There is an ocean in your wardrobe

but you want the seven seas.
