The consumer should be ashamed.

The consumer
must clean away the germs
holding their breath
to block the fumes
opening the windows
allowing the wind
to carry the toxins away
infusing within the clouds
the consumer is well aware
a mask
a pair of gloves
protection is a must
finding a place for the trash
that piles
because the producer
they only produce
solving the waste
and preventing the toxicity
isn’t their concern
why must it be?

The consumer
should be ashamed
piling the cans
breathing the fumes
wearing the gloves
being eaten away
by the chemicals
piling their plastics
and their boxes
cutting down
it just isn’t fitting
they should be ashamed.

The producers
they only produce
and the consumers consume
the waste is for them
for the consumer
conflicted of guilt
it is for them
to break down
to buy organic
to be green
to walk more often
to fix
as the producer produces
although if the consumer stopped
wouldn’t all their product
be nothing but waste
from the very start?

Thanks for reading.
