Get Rid Of The Advertisements

All Hail the Plastic Bag
 
Solitary plastic bag
pale, transparent, empty,
save for gusts of wind
propelling it from the car-park;
over playing fields, deep green,
in hops and bursts
as breezes fluctuate.

Momentarily, it embraces netball hoop,
trying for a slam-dunk!

Where will it end?
It's heading for the river.
there to puzzle perky perch,
eyes a-bulge
with bewilderment of sensation
before handles snag in spiky fin.

Fish becomes encased in pvc shroud.
Gills struggle,
then cease.
Fish drowns.
