The Dirigible Balloon
Poetry for Children

A Note from the Fruit and Veg

Don’t wrap us up
Please set us free
Out on the shelf
Where we should be

No plastic bags
We like to breathe
And those who buy
Likely agree

Cloth bags work great
Can be reused
And packed with care
We won’t get bruised

Then shoppers get
Just what they need
There’ll be less waste
We must succeed

The plastic ends
Up in the sea
Hurts animals
So, hear our plea …

Don’t wrap us up
Please set us free
No plastic bags
We like to breathe.
