Tale of the Seas

Tale of the Seas

A Poem by Sush Krish

Expression of the regrettable state of the seas of the world.


Dreams of lost kingdoms and mermaids,

Of Atlantis, Arial and treasure long strayed,

This human fantasy fades

As the oceans are poisoned many shades.


The seas gleamed a magnificent blue,

How it happened, we had no clue.

One day, we couldn’t tell apart

Where the sewer end and where the seas start.


Toxic waste from dark, concrete structures,

Morbid liquids when an oil tank ruptures,

And all the refuse from home and farm,

Find solace in the ocean, deep and calm.


With marine life dying,

Ice caps and glaciers crying,

The levels of the sea rise,

But human greed, it does not suffice!


In the name of development, we commit a sin!

Against ourselves and mother nature akin.

Gandhi once said “There is enough for everyone’s need”

“But not for anyone’s greed.”


If the Earth is no more,

What can money buy?

It is time to bring cure,

Before it’s too late to even try.
