Waters of flame

What is it that we damage
with our relentless feuding;
with our consumption,
and our pollution?
What else will be destroyed
while we are busy
seeking vengeance?
What other hearts and lungs
will cease to beat and breathe
while we pour our energies
into bullying, battling and buying?
An eye for an eye
a tooth for a tooth
and slowly all the whales
will beach themselves,
to avoid the waters
we have turned to flame...
