The Whale

 

Further out to sea

Then where the waves break

Is where the boat will be,

When they begin to take.

Take from the ocean,

What is not rightfully theirs.

Shortly after the commotion

They become millionaires.

 

What should forever be free,

Is being dragged up ramps.

Respect is the key,

Not dated use by stamps.

They are not to be wasted,

These amazing beings,

Nor to be tasted,

Only for sightseeing.

 

As they flip and fly,

Almost like angels,

They are reducing the supply,

While they stick on price labels.

The boat turned around,

Ready to set sail,

To where only one creature can be found –

The whale.

    2 STARS: -I really enjoy the imagery in this poem. There is a lot of figurative writing.
    – I understand, really clearly, what you are protesting about when I read your poem.
    WISH: I think your poem misses a little bit of irony to it(verbal irony, dramatic irony, irony of situation).
