Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

Innocence kills the orca as much as the cat
By pretentious Terrans ego-filled pretenders
Caging the orca they to fatten bourses
O’ greedy oceanarium carpetbaggers

Ignorance for what they take as fish-like mammal
Are more intelligent than Terrans whose very brain
Is as fractious as a beetle or ant infinitesimal
Valueless they have no virtue yet to settle

Orca is a cosmic warrior sent to balance
The seas to form the phalanx versus negative
Fishes and creepers from surface to yon bottom
Sent forth by Hades a-preying on dumb mortals

‘Tis surely criminal to slaughter or cage them
Within they are of human souls o! so benign!
From mighty Sirius’ mien sent forth they
One day shall cosmic Justice settle the debts
Of greed ignominy of orcas’ killers whet

Such day to come is near when killers all
Will be the ones en-caged in dens so tall
Nowhere can they escape the jails so high
Till justice served on them they make a sigh
