You can blame me if you so desire.
I caused the oil spill with my growing fires.
I caused the oil spill with my growing greed.
I caused the oil spill with my endless stomach to feed.
I needed everything this planet had to offer me.
I needed instant gratification so I would feel free.
I needed plastic containers for my food to nuke.
I need fast cars to drive so I could get to work and puke.
From the night we went out and binged drank at the big game.
From the reality show we watched as I desired more fame.
I needed the big house to cool and heat all night and day.
I needed all those plastic toys so my kids did not go outside and play.
I needed all that fast food I could ingest when I was too lazy to cook.
I needed to throw away all that styrofoam that we took.
I needed a new smart phone every upgrade.
I needed the best buy so I would not lose much pay.
I imported my hunger across the ocean to your land.
I sold my way of life to others in desert sands.
I am everywhere now and you are me as well.
If you don’t live like me, you soon will I do tell.
