Listen to the Poem
The seabirds circle above the darkened water,
beholding the water's repelling betrayal.
The flightless penguins without sweaters,
struggle for survival.
Whereas man thrives and preens ,
seabirds and penguins can no longer.
The tainted seaweed cries,
lies hidden under the sunlight,
binding without salvation.
Paradise lost in the circle of life,
to satisfy human self for wealth.
