Mother Nature's Gifts

Where did it come from?
That plastic bag in the tree
It flaps like a flag
But signals nothing to me

Where did they come from?
Those cans piled in the bush
Like a nest for metal birds
But there's no birdsong - shush!

Where did they come from?
The fast food wrappers in the flowers
Bright colours attract the bees
But no nectar and the grease sours

I know where they come from
The bushes, birds and trees
The flowers and the bees
They are mother nature's gifts
But the waste and refuse mountains
Piled in man-made drifts
They are a mystery to me
