Torturous Fisheries, Rare Whale Goner

Her Royal Highness,
Youthful
Innocent 
Playful
Curious
Hungry
Entangled, 
Rodanthe, North Carolina.

Offshore enmeshed,
Bone cutting Kevlar
Mouth
Tail,
Trailing line too,
Agonising murder!

Ghastly crab pots 
Lethal lines
Curtains of death!
Critically endangered 
North Atlantic 
Incomparable Right Whales,
Expedited extinction,
Goddamnit!

Eviscerate fisheries,
Get outta oceans
Hundred-Year Healing,
Climate Gen
(Four point two billion nation)
Keepin’ it kind,
Just vegan!
