This day is always so fun,
Another trip around the sun.
You and loved ones celebrating together,
Knowing you are not plastic and won’t last forever.
But that doesn’t matter because today is about you,
And now this trash is part of your history, too.
So congratulations on your big day,
Let’s hope our planet can survive your selfish play.
