A Mermaid's Point of View

They pollute our waters, the land, the air They pollute the planet without a care They kill our friends from down below As they swim up to say hello They build weapons to kill each other They don't respect each race or colour They try to hunt us in every way But they cannot find our hideaway We'll never surface because we fear We cannot trust the humans here by Ana Espinola Collins

Excellent! Has a nice flow to it, but carries across the message loud and clear! Sad, really, but oh so true - well, aside from the mermaids of course :)
