A Step in the Right Direction

A Step in the Right Direction


At the beach I saw a bus-stop bench

made entirely out of recycled,

odd, discarded thongs,

lost and left behind by thoughtless tourists

to be washed up on the tides.


So this is how we try to save the Sea,

I thought, from choking in our waste;

by taking one step at a time.


Perhaps if we turned them into tyres

we’ll get there faster.

Authors linguistic note; I believe you Americans

call thongs, “flip-flops” for some reason.



The Reverend Hellfire is composed entirely of recycled products.

Safe when used as directed.
