Agonising Age, Emaciated Blue Whales

Twenty twenty-two
Timor-Leste coastline,
Royal Blue Highnesses
Scrawny starvin’,
Newbornless pods.

Twenty twenty-three
No Regal Blue pods,
Phenological pulverisation,
Fossil-fuelled penurious seas!

Blue Whales - Reese Halter - Chinese Fishing Armada

Depraved krill harvest,
Insatiable Chinese armada
Vacuuming Southern Ocean,
Sea ice-dependent,
Krill feeds the lot,
Man’s calculated Extinction!

Go plant-based,
Consume sparingly,
Laugh, love more!
Wilderness salvation,
Defend nature,
Hope with direct-action,
Wake-up World!
