 An article speaking about the prevention of whale hunting.

Book 5 * Page 12

Whale hunters


Whale hunting’s still

not a thing of the past,

for countries still kill whales,

while the rest of the world is aghast.


So; Yo- ho ye sailors

with the vandalising streak.

What havoc upon the world's ecology

you reek.


Yo -ho to the Japanese

and to other whale slaughterers,

believing that whales are a food commodity

when swimming in their waters.


Yo ho to the memory,

may you reap the revengeful tale,

of the ghost of Moby Dick

and the man haunting whale.
