What invisible monsters do we heed
knowing what we know
about ourselves?

Is it any wonder

our footpaths and streets are fouled

with litter,

and our seas and waterways choked

with plastic?

Had only we chosen as our guide

the likes of

Commandant Jacques Cousteau,
who wrote,

“The glory of nature 
provides evidence that God Exists,”

our world might be more tidied up.
