Tahlequahs Grief

Tahlequas greif tour of the Salish Sea brought to you by pollution and apathy her mournful song sponsored by Shell and BP sung as she carries decomposing baby for nine days so far surrounded by family as they starve dying as a community travel far taking turns lifting their sorrow above all else a wake a funeral for the world to see as the scientists circle like vultures scavengers waiting to take her carcass child for testing autopsy murder poisioning no LNG its not green see whos checking the water for radiation from fukishima while we all eat salmon watch and listen on devices powered by poison so heart breaking now change the channel excuse me I have to go drive to buy some paper straws wrapped in plastic
