DEADFINZ

Artwork by Rita Kirkman.

lower the death curtain, catch ‘em all,
they swarm too fast, in an electric ball,
how to catch ‘em all?

shoot poison into the water,
watch as they swim to a pause, stunned,
cyanide finz unable to creak and move,
catch ‘em all!

want the flash and bang,
how about an underwater firework show,
a bomb for all fish,
scoop them up as they float to the surface,
cold and thick.

trawl it, nets reaching the horizon,
and uproot everything in the water,
coral homes, razed, rare beauties, wasted,
collateral damage,
catch ‘em all!
