Taji Japan

As I sat and watched this dvd
I became ashamed for all humanity
The Dolphins were corraled into a cove
Where they were were stripped of their very souls
My stomach churned as the water became red
Not by kool aid, but what the Dolphins bled
Slaughtered one by one
By the spears of men from the land of the rising sun
All the 20,000 cries from the pain of these mammals as they were butchered for food and 
The sense of compassion for other living things, have we lost it
Money for some who are sold to shows such as Sea World
The rest are used for school food, mercury poisoning for every Japanese boy and girl
The show is called The Cove, watch it and take a stand
Stop the Dolphin slaughters in Taji Japan
This takes place each September, once  again 20,000 more Dolphins will die
Many Governments will develope a greased palm blind eye
