What do we see in the photo above?
The man whose pants are almost falling,
His hat tilting, fuming like a demon,
Or like a buffoon, showing how mighty he is,
Lifting a huge mace on a helpless woman!
Why? Just because she is washing something in the estuary!
What a nincompoop he looks!
And he is not blind! Oh yes! He is ogling the woman!
Right in front of him there is such an odious sight!
The huge sewage pipes are releasing tons of toxic effluents,
Surely dredged material, industrial waste, sewage sludge,
Probably also radioactive waste, all certainly bound to have
Economic and health impacts, killing marine life, damaging
Habitats and ecosystems, resulting in dead zones.
This man must be having a burning wish
To display his manhood on a helpless frail woman
Seeing nobody around, instead of addressing the authorities concerned.
Because of such inefficient public workers, illegal dumping of toxic
Waste continues, causing eutrophication, killing marine life,
Causing damage to the crucial ecosystem, the coral reefs,
The place of great biodiversity.
Too much is being taken for granted!
Beware! Even the incredible Great Barrier Reef is threatened!
Isn’t it high time to give a chance to the dying marine creatures
To share the planet with us?
Indeed, it’s now or never that the concerned authorities should
Get the wakeup call, and take drastic measures,
To leave our marine ecosystem healthy for our posterity!
