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?
