Graveyards In The Sea - Poem by David Harris

How many times have we seen,
things being recovered from the sea.
Things that should have remained there.
Like grave robbers,
these looters rob the dead of the sea.
It is different when no lives are lost
and cargo is what they seek,
or to find a reason why a ship died,
but when it come to personal possessions
of people who died there,
they should be left with the person
whomever he or she may be.
These wrecks should be a graveyard
and not disturbed by human hand.
They should remain in peace
far below at the bottom of the sea.

    No one should violate their resting place. It is greed and thoughtlessness. Lovely sentiments David.
