A passage back to the earlier centuries
Gives us a glimpse into the unknown
When a sailors highest schooling was elementary
At a time when no one would have flown.
Ancient tales of a treacherous beast
Stalking the wake of any stray vessel
In search of a seafarer feast.
Yet, this Kraken that I speak of is no longer here
Instead there is a new threat that we should fear.
It comes from the earth
But we give it a second birth,
The oil is molded and manufactured
But isn't as easy to capture.
An all consuming fire of Plastic,
Will grow to choke out the ocean.
Under our noses it becomes more and more drastic
An unending supply of pollution
Or a tupperware
Becoming chemical warfare.
We have brought destruction to our own front door.
The plastic wave will kill us next.
The Kraken has once again been unleashed...
