Whales
playing and singing

Hosts of people (thank the lord!) make speeches
SHOUT ANGRILY
10,000 at a time     carrying rubber
whales      & banners . . . . .

OTHERS inspired for action TRAVEL
QUICKLY
in tiny dinghies           Jacks in a Box
BETWEEN GUN & QUARRY...

I myself  say  nothing     do nothing     think
nothing ...
greasing my boots     & lighting a lamp or candle.

Occasionally I imagine these magnificent creatures
singing     chattering    leaping  dancing

Note

The Blue Whale, twice the size of a dinosaur, is the largest animal  on earth.The Gray Whale, when pressed, travels at 25 mph. The Sperm Whale can stay below for  two hours & dive more than a mile.

They, or some of them, provide cosmetics, pet food & shoe polish.

Whales in the past were harpooned, they dragged the hunter’s boat, & finally lances were thrust into them & the bodies were towed ashore. Today the ship's gunner fires a charge which explodes in the target, & the carcases are processed in factory ships.

Whales are cooperative & friendly. Many of them live & play in family groups.

One of the great whales - the Humpback - communicating at an astonishing distance, sings eerily & beautifully.
