The Sea and the Bowl

They swim the blue vastness of the ocean, circling the globe

They are always evolving through generations

But we evolve quicker

Exploiting them

Ingesting them till few are left


Those few are kidnapped

Sentenced to lives in small pools

Never to swim that blue vastness, never to see their family


Stuck here, forced to smile like young children

Abused beyond great measures, forced to take narcotics

Never to have their own, never to show them the world

Living a life, happy to all, melancholy to them

Nobody can tell, forced to take pills to smile, to keep the turnstiles rolling


But soon there marketability escapes them

One night their keepers enter to give them a magic pill

They can once again swim the great blue seas
