The Whale

The whale to scale
Dwarfs to great measure
Our smaller and more fragile frame
Yet we persistently assail the magnificent whale
Sans ecological conscience or shame

    This poem effectively contrasts the inequity between the power of our brains and our inability to understand or control its functions. Thanks for your words. Mark
