The Avaricious Humans

Location

Kept in confined cages,

waiting out their days.

A peeled radish in the nude,

executed for a posh pelt;

purely for the avarice of humans.

 

A dorsal fin removed to prepare a luxury soup,

debilitates swimming and brings death.

Reaped from roaring rivers,

left to suffocate in the heavens;

purely for the avarice of humans. 

 

Stolen milk from her progeny

separates them for an eternity,

the mother bleats her grief;

purely for the avarice of humans.
