Ganges River Dolphin (day 517)

You marvelous beasts
Perfectly sculpted
Flappers and fins
And intelligence
With little beeps
Play time

And then
With ignorance
Sweeping under foot
Today’s dirt
Old brooms
Into Ganges
Sacred flow of earth

You tycoons
You bitter old souls
Leading hands
Of rituals
Religious norms
Do you know
How you continue

The Ganges river dolphin
Will die because of you
Continued pollution
Continued toxins
Continued death
Continued tragedy
Suffers, the world suffers
