The Ocean

Vast, powerful motion of all time, How many do you facilitate sublime? To discover, protect and to ably fight, By wood, to keep our territory right. To race, enjoying the sea air of such waft, And to fish for delicious bites from our nets cast; Enjoying the freedoms of the Common Fisheries Policy, Having livelihoods protected through areas of advocacy. One of carbon and two of oxygen, water, And of course with salt which does the liquid alter; Also with sodium, magnesium, calcium and sulphate too, Plus the ions potassium and chlorine which do. You can't really drink it apart from a sip, But seawater and its fish can be boiled for your lip; Cod’s coming back as no more overfished, So pollock does not anymore need to be wished. Our first travels were made on the ocean wave, Its captains gave respect and sensibly did behave; We journeyed from England to America to make, A life for ourselves which nobody was to brake. It moves with power, and sometimes takes a life, And hides oil that's dug through much toil and strife; The global community needs to channel its energy, For renewable sources to be designed with synergy.
