Ode to a tonne of seawater

A one tonne tank of seawater
on a harbour side
1 metre high, 1 metre long
and another metre wide.

It held its position
through Iron Man UK –
shouting its message:
“The sea gets its way”.

We can try pushing water around
and crafting life the ‘human way’
but water is bigger than all of us
so let’s listen … and really
HEAR what water has to say.

For all the good it does, Water doesn’t ask much in return.
It says  “Don’t overfish” me.
It says “Don’t pollute” me.
