The Starfish Wept

The starfish wept
In water polluted
As my bladder emptied
In tears diluted

'A measure of space I'd gladly swop
For the treasure that leisurely lies 'neath my rock
But don't step on me please, leave me be (keep my shape)
I'm a starfish, related (albeit distantly)

About this poem:
I guess this one's about idly pissing on a starfish and pondering whether it should have rather been avoided for the greater good. Been there, done that, got the seashirt. Frivolous ... but I suppose there is a deeper meaning, in that we should really respect all life forms, a'la the Buddhist teachings.

if starfish weep than i weep too.
Aye! I think it's a paradigm that one could breathe some life into ... or maybe just discuss over starfish sushi.
