“CinemaSlice presents: Art Lives On by David Waldman” – #11


“There’s Plastic in Our Poops Now”

An online article, dated November 3, 2018, by Jason Daley, writing for the Sierra Club, revealed that a new study found plastic in Our (Human) Poop. Indeed, tiny plastic fragments and fibers were everywhere.

I thought of the Horror implications of this for our species and decided to write a song and make a video about the problem. My song, “There’s Plastic in Our Poops Now,” is not a substitute for the science behind the article.

{Verse 1}

You keep sayin’ science news is boring,

Well, maybe you’re smart, maybe your wrong,

We’ve been a-dumpin’ mega-tons of plastic,

And now, a wake-up call: You hear that gong?

There’s plastic in our poops now, of microscopic size,

Plastic lands in the oceans until everybody dies.

{Verse 2}

You keep tossing, when you oughta recycle,

That’s eight million metric tons a year,

Plastic ends up battered by the oceans,

Until it’s teensy, microsized, my dear.

There’s plastic in our poops now, of microscopic size,

Plastic lands in the ocean, until everybody dies.

{Verse 3}

Plastic lands in our stomachs and intestines,

Lots of plastic enters our food chain,

Fish and shellfish and birdies eat that plastic,

And we eat them; more plastic, once again.

There’s plastic in our poops now, of microscopic size,

Plastic lands in the ocean until everybody dies.

{Verse 4}

We could each review our shopping habits,
And take steps to minimize the threat,

But everyone’s a-shoppin’ and a-tossin’,
Yeah, Polythene Pam, she  ain’t learned nothin’ yet.

There’s plastic in our oceans, and, friends, well, here’s the scoop,

Most of these days that plastic’s gonna wind up in our poop.


Our poop, my poop, your poop, his poop, her poop, their poop, all poop,
