WOTD: Sound -So Long and Thanks for all the Fish (poem)

With apologies to Douglas Adams…

So Long and Thanks for All the Fish

Dolphins use a form of echo location
To navigate the ocean’s depths.
Screaming into the abyss
Listening for what comes back.

They can find something the size of a basketball
Half a mile away.

I sit in silence and watch you leave.

If I screamed, if I cried
Would the echo tell me
How to find my way
Back to you?
