ghost gear, plastic pollution.
Researchers from the Orient
kill whales to “save” them…..
serving the researched animal up for
after their careful “scientific” investigations.
A dead whale
is a big mess.
The decaying carcass is alive with mind numbing stench.
Where is the spirit of the whale now?
The electricity that animated this leviathan carbon construct,
powered it through latitudes and longitudes of salt sea, sifting krill
from the chilled ocean waters….
Has it launched like a rocket (at the speed of light) into the next venue?
Has it fizzled like a spent match stick and disseminated as diffuse as smoke on the water?
Could it have died for our sins?
Or because of them?
Was it mindful of being a select member of a vanishing tribe?
Could it have told us how to turn the tide before we too are gone?
