Poetry: We Bring Democracy To The Fish

We Bring Democ­ra­cy To The Fish
–Don­ald Hall
From White Apples and the Taste of Stone

It is unac­cept­able that fish prey on each other.
For their com­fort and safe­ty, we will lib­er­ate them
into fish­farms with secure, durable boundaries
that exclude preda­tors. Our care will provide
for their lib­er­ty, health, hap­pi­ness, and nutrition.
Of course all crea­tures need to feel useful.
At matu­ri­ty the fish will dis­cov­er their purposes.
