Toxic Seas

Free verse poetry

Rainbow warrior and Beluga, names to remember
names to support, Greenpeace ships
trawling the oceans around the world
ridding them of human disregard, those corporate plastics.

Toxic wastelands in rivers, seas and oceans around
this beautiful world marred by humankind demand,
where does this name mankind come from?
Not very kind to the seas or the many creatures living there!

Corporations increasing plastic production while recycling tiny amounts;
add to this trawler fishing, it’s up to us to cut the demand for supply.

Stop support for mass killings of unwanted dolphins, sharks and turtles
to name but a few, thrown half dead or dead back into the water,
you know the ones those cute creature magnets on the fridge door
keeping cool mass caught seafood from your corporate store.

This time sees the rise of uneaten jellyfish ruining beach bathers holidays,
think about this while peeing on jellyfish stings.

Here’s the story, a must-read.

Thank you as always, Rahul Sharma, Priyanka Srivastava Elisabeth Khan Somsubhra Banerjee for this great idea and giving my words a platform.
