Birds and Dolphins and Whales and all kinds of fish,
Turtles and shrimp and herring and barracuda,
Tarpon and Marlin and sharks and parrot fish
Scallops and oysters and mussels and lobsters,
Seagulls and eagles, hawks and songbirds,
Every creature who lives naturally there,
Is dying

At the foundation of the human food chain.
Like Abel's, their blood cries out from the ground.
Even the bankers can't ignore Death.
A United of the living is crucial now.

Every one who will feel this cloud of death inexorably.

See the living brought to safe harbor,
When the tears of the dying
