in memoriam...

Ode to The Whale

O great Leviathan,
What do you sing of?
Is it the fate of your kind?
Is it a song of love?
Is what you are singing
A song of your past?
Do you sing of your future
Or is this day your last?
Do you sing of the beauty
Of the beloved sea?
Do you sing of the pleasure
Of being free?
Man has betrayed you,
Gentle Giant of the deep
You must fight back,
Lest you forever sleep!
