Every Day, World Oceans Day

Hallelujah fish!
Glorious gratitude,
Fecund feeders,
Diligent digesters,
Alkaline-stomach’d,
Diamond defecators
Calcite crystals,
Cracking carbonates!

Risin’ resuscitators
Countering combustors,
Alkaline pump
Neutralisin’ surface acidity,
Mother’s climate solvers
Forage fish.
Get outta oceans!
Soil is life,
Go vegan,
Gentleness.
