“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.

**LYRICS**

{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.

{Tag}

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

Plastic!
