This picture was used to illustrate the following poem here:
Our Country is in an outrage
_____Young and old, they feel the pain
Nightly news brings trepidation
_____Will life ever be pure again?
With each new day, more horrors seem to come
_____Above the Sea and below
The pain of creatures large and small
_____Too great for us to know
Endangered species, cling to life
_____Covered with oil, what a horrible sight
Dolphins dying on the sand
_____It's man alone that lends a hand
Breathing is a luxury
_____Who ever would have thought!
Ask the Tortoise, Pelican and others
_____The ones lucky enough to be caught
Man fares no better, in this living nightmare
_____Lost lives, lost livelihoods, lost futures
The devastation, is more than most can bear
The Captain of an animal rescue boat
_____Killed himself today
He couldn't take it anymore
_____That's what his friends all say
WHERE ARE YOU GOD ?...WHERE ARE YOU HIDING ?....LAY CLAIM TO YOUR PROMISES...
Do you not smell, or hear or see ?
Your words of protection and love, they ring hollow to me.
How can anyone possibly believe in you, when you do absolutely NOTHING...NOTHING,( yet again.)
