I am the outcome of decisions made,
So a few people can get well paid.
You want your golf courses to be perfect, green and neat.
Meanwhile I poison the shellfish you eat.
As the ocean gets hotter and hotter,
algal blooms, domoic acid ensues,
I kill off your precious sea otters.
It’s in your face, the displaced:
Washed-up dolphins, sea turtles, and manatees.
One by one, I suffocate your vital blue seas.
Do you need a fertilizer detective?
You can’t seem to come together as an intelligent human collective.
I am the result of your short-term perspective.
