(220) A Film To Sea

Rating: 3.5

Far away in the distance,
a shadow cast upon the sea.
Upon arriving closer,
that shadow bled a travesty.
Hundreds of fish lay still,
a film upon the water.
A sad displeasing sight to view,
sad for me, sad for you.
Toxic waste bares its ugly face.
Progress has a dirty hand.

The ecosystem is in danger.

I like your play on words in both the title and contents, it adds an interesting contrast to the serious nature of the poem. Very clever... among your very best work! Brian
