Oi Polloi
Whale song

Once this magnificent animal swam freely in the seas
But now held captive for human greed.
A miserable "life" behind bars and concrete walls
No companion killer whales to hear its calls.
Yes. I'm sickened by what I've seen
And the mass Faroe Islands pilot whale slaughter is obscene.
Brainwashed and desensitized for 24 years
My eyes don't easily fill with tears
But when I watched those whales scream and die
The tears ran freely from my eyes
To see them murdered, hacked apart
Was like something tearing inside my heart
Yet there is hope, and I still believe
That one day such creatures might all swim free
Peaceful coexistence - no fear, no need to hide
Ourselves and whales together side by side
