All Hail Blue Monarchs!

Breathtaking thirty-four metres
Mesmerising one hundred-ninety
Gloried tonnes!
Regal baleen whales,
Largest-ever living
Acoustic map reading
Venerable beaming kinsfolk,
Hat tip powerhouse krill,
Blue whale stokers!

Mother’s finest
Fisheries boosters,
Phytoplankton fertilisers,
Prochlorococcus enrichers
(Largest O2-making area),
Climate solvers,
Sixty lifetime tonnes
CO2 stowage,
Seafloor diversity sustainers,
Long-term carbon
Superlative storehousers!

Pernicious petroleumers
Reckless abandon
Broiling earthly life,
Oil backboned
Carcinogenic
Infinite, insidious
Ocean
Microplastic polluters.

Perfect PCB
DDT, methylmercury
Glyphosate sponges,
California Blue Monarchs
Swallow ten MILLION
Poisonous microplastics
Twenty-four / seven /
Three sixty-five!

We’ve had it.
Engage,
Curb consumerism,
Eschew materialism,
Zero combustion
Twenty-thirty World.
Defend Blues,
Go Vegan
Refuse plastics!
