A week in the life of a disposable
, Dumbdedoo, dumbdedoo, look at all those shoppers, coming and going, yohoo, here I am, I know I look like all the others, I’m not particularly special nor do I stand out from the crowd, how can I feel so alone, when there are so many like me, but pick me please, pick me – I want out of this boring place, with my plastic package…..come on, there must be more to life than this…..they put these snazzy rippers on and a cute little design, I’m like all the others, but Yahoo, pick me……
Well here I go, how exciting, yippee, a new home, a new life, I was going out of my mind sitting on that supermarket shelf, but that’s in the past, I have a bright new future now - where am I going what will my life be….I hear rumours that it has something to do with babies, I like babies, babies are cool…..
– Dumbdedoo, yahoo, me next, come on what’s do you want me to do, lets get on with it, come on, hurry….
– Well there’s this new sound, they tell me it’s a baby, sure cries a lot, I wonder why? And I feel a bit apprehensive, a bit like it is all about to end soon, what an anticlimax……Oh dear, what is that next to my inner self, soft gentle skin, I wonder what it means, but the feeling is good, I have a sense of purpose, I am happy, I think, just hanging around till it is done. Oh dear what is that sensation, it makes me swell, yuck yuck, wet skin, o dear, I want out of here, I deserve better than this, I could have been anything better than this, I could have been a plastic shopping bag, or I could have even been a Bubble wrap….but a Nappy oh no, I deserve better than this…..
Sunday Early PM
– Phew take this baby off me, HELP ME! I am about to suffocate! I can not take anymore of this. At last, the relief, I wondered when it would end, but what now, hey what you doing, why have you put me in this dark black bag, w’let, w’me, w’out, hello, w’let w’me, w’out…..is any one there? Maybe if I make a smell they will notice……
, Where am I off to now, I can not see, it is still dark, what’s that noise, Hello, hello, what the heck, what a life, what a long life - I am just going to sit here, and stink and rot and I it might take me 100yrs, what a life ah, I am sure I was destined for better things for a better life, I just had a bad start you see, no one listens, no one cares, no one really even noticed me, no-one asked me what I wanted in life, I really only wanted one wee break, I could have been anything, really, I could have been star, but anything would have been better than this……
Tuesday PM (still babbles on about miserable life)
– Hello, anyone out there, anyone listening? I’m in this awful black hole, covered in all this filth and no one cares. When will it end………Will someone put me out of my misery….Please……
