Oct 2018
The unsuspecting bow splinters
harpoons leap at qualms
beneath
the
deep
determined to savage the bounty
that
seperate
glory from night
abruptly
Inexplicable
saline
sob limb and lung
A
watery grave
tugged by rope on spear
the creature pall bear It's captors into the dark bellows
of
the cruel sea
stuck to the whale
Hero
ย ย of a thousand tales
I wish this was a true story
in fact the opposite is true for WHALES
Very few countries still practice whaling
Killing around a thousand Whales per annum
After decades of protection
The NORTH ATLANTIC RIGHT WALE'S
POPULATION IS FEWER THAN 300
This is dedicated to all nature conservation
Efforts protecting this beatiful mass that is so important to the ecosystems around the globe
