It’s in the Bag
Plastic shards will congregate
Coat the world till it’s too late
Choke the sea, and with it life
Desolation will be rife
If we don’t reverse this trend
Our planet will meet its end
Wasting the intrinsic worth
And splendor of our fair Earth
The prompt for Shall We Gather? from Lillian at dVerse is to write a quadrille that includes the word “gather” or a form of the word.
A quadrille is a 44-word poem, with no other restrictions (except the prompt word).
Unfortunately, as noted by Lillian in the comments below, “congregate” is not a form of the word “gather.”
