Today I am trying to save myself in the polluted ocean,
For my brethren to survive in our own domain.
Alas! My beautiful ocean home! Look, brainy human beings!
Where is your intelligence gone, reply to me supreme beings?
You are conquering other planets in nescience,
Why don’t you conquer your conscience?
I am suffocating, so exhausted
My life span is limited,
Look at me struggling, you perfect image of God!
I don’t understand why you need a stronger prod.
Huge patches of garbage are accumulating,
From the West Coast of North America to Japan spreading.
Awake, on the marine debris think, have mercy
Save from utter devastation for sake of decency.
You know it, that the buoyant plastics show resiliency.
It’s now or never, you will perish if you don’t heed me,
Together, on the journey to hell we shall meet thee,
In unbearable agony.
The pleasures of the sea you will soon forget,
Sure, if the bell of disaster has not rung in you yet,
Forget about great holidaying with your family
On any pristine island, to name one, Hawaii!
With your vain expectation of sheer glee.
Beware! Your heedless actions will boomerang on thee.
