Shock Value = 0

Seabed, Port Erin bay, Isle of Man

usually an outsider of the human race
surprised that I identify,
am deeply shamed and frightened,
double-crossed and blamed
by those who wantonly destroy life 
 in my human name

please don't shock me any more
I get it, I deplore and support
 well-intentioned effort:
bloody oceans, beached whales
scenes of cruelty so massive
make me helpless
and passive
