Current Mood: reminiscing on my travels in 2017...
Current Music: (none)

On Setting Foot in England for the First Time
- I loved my time in England, don't get me wrong... just this side was really unexpected...
Apologies to my English friends,
It's not to criticize your home,
But as a foreigner stepping foot
For the first time in your region,
I couldn't help myself feeling
Taken aback at how much litter
There is pretty much everywhere.
On the coach from Heathrow,
Looking out the window, first
Thing I noticed all along the sides
Of the motorway, piles of litter! (but I mean piles!)
Bottles, cans, wrappers, bags,
All kinds of garbage, so much
Of it, it was arrestingly shocking.
I've never seen anything like it.
And being in towns turned out just
As noticeably littered everywhere.
I don't understand why it's in
Such a state, to be honest.
Where I live, there is litter,
But it's an occasional affair,
Not the norm of every space!
Sorry, but it was truly shocking.
When I go to different countries,
My time isn't spent on finding
Differences between my home
And the new region I'm in, but
This, it just hits you in the face,
It's just absolutely everywhere.
