Why Study Marine Science

When I look to the water

I do not see the waves

Crashing

Scattering the rocks and silt below

When I look to the water

I do not see the sand

Holding the shells in a grip

Firm

Stationary

Yet so fragile

When I look to the water

I do not see the boats

The people

Splashing

Full of joy

I see a clock

On a ticking time bomb

Tick

Tick

Tick

The waves

try to push the hands back

hopless

The sand

aims to stop the clock

Fruitless

Because the boats push the time along

The people sing to the beat

Tick

Tick

Tick

Listen

To the sound

Tick

Tick

Tick
