To all the haiku aficionados reading this post, I apologise profusely. It’s my first haiku so I hope you will forgive me. I haven’t followed all the rules, and it’s about as subtle as a sledgehammer. (Click to enlarge, if you dare.)
I wrote this because I can’t get the Taiji Cove massacres out of my head. Dolphins are complicated creatures. They have much in common with humans, including a darker side. However, their childlike curiosity and joyful play makes man’s cruel treachery at places like Taiji Cove seem positively evil. It makes me ashamed to be human.
