Such a greedy and careless bunch,
While you walk among the lands
We, the whales carve out our lives
Beneath majestic waves.
We are a curious sea faring species,
We swim under the setting suns
And rising moons.
Sadly your harpoon ships kill us,
Stab us for oils, skins, or pure sport,
In oceans where ice floats and melts
I watch as man made machinery,
Impale my kind.
We carry the ocean on our backs,
As you carry harpoon on your shoulders,
Listen to the songs of the deep
Please heed our melody.
