I watch as
a thousand cars a day
roll off the production line.

A thousand cars.
Four thousand wheels
and tyres.
Twenty thousand lamps.
Hundreds of thousands
of pieces of metal, plastic, glass.
Every. Single. Day.

And as I watch
a thousand cars a day
roll off the production line,
I wonder why
we worry so much
about the odd
plastic straw.
