Salmon in Concrete

This symbol of health and freedom
Drawn, carved and moulded
In some man made strata
Then embedded in grey concrete
Harsh as unkind words
From beautiful lips

Be careful not to miss the point:

The ecosystem that gave rise to the fish
Holds us in the same esteem
Even when occasionally we may pollute
And sully the spawning ground:
Seek love and forgiveness
And come home
