National Poetry Day Message Poem by Jack Tucker

The Message from a Whale


Dear World,

This is my story.

My pod of ten,

playing around

eating anything near us.

Then there was trouble,

blood spilling everywhere






they keep on coming,

taking more and more of us.

Then they took them away.

I heard it again.

Sharp pain shot through my back.

I was getting pulled up.

I knew it was the END.
