    i read your poem ''bloodsports'' - just like in politics we jusitfy are own selfish greed. i could not have said it better.

    A most Realistic and graphic poet who ducks no issues. Topical and modern, from street wars to 'The Somme'. Depth and detail. Anger, sadness and joy. Consistently an excellent read. Paul.

DEATH OF A SPERM WHALE

Most of the Governments of the world are trying to ban the hunting of whales. But Japan and Norway persist in the killing of a magnificent species. Whale meat is sold in Japan as a luxury food at exorbitant prices Whales are no threat to Man but are being hunted to extinction.

With her calf she dives
Into the darkness a mile below the waves
Where the great squid abides
Ferocious Goliath monarch of oceans deep.

Singing a lilting lullaby to her calf
In the darkness she swims in playfu

[Hata Bildir]
