Every Day, World Oceans Day

Hallelujah fish!
Glorious gratitude,
Fecund feeders,
Diligent digesters,
Diamond defecators
Calcite crystals,
Cracking carbonates!

Risin’ resuscitators
Countering combustors,
Alkaline pump
Neutralisin’ surface acidity,
Mother’s climate solvers
Forage fish.
Get outta oceans!
Soil is life,
Go vegan,
