The White Flag

I wrote this a few years ago, and every time I see a sack caught amidst a shrub, or stretched against a fence, this is what comes to mind.

On a plastic grocery bag caught in a tree

There, flickering in the breeze outside my window,
advertising some tattered ‘mart’ logo,
waves the white flag of Nature.
It has finally surrendered in the
long battle against Man.
