Biodiversity

There are different fish, now.
Before, you could tell what would be where.
It’s not like that.

Not that I’m complaining.
My buyers like a bit of the exotic.
You don’t have to import
What’s already here.

Often something comes up.
What’s that?
We’re all experts, now.
I don’t mind at all.
But some of them find it
Slightly bewildering.

There’s a colony of seals
In the harbour
And you regularly see dolphins.
That’s nice.
It’s much warmer
Than it used to be.

And some of the fish
You’re not expecting to find.
Well,
You get a higher price
And everyone’s happy.

It’s disconcerting, thoigh,
How much the
Weather is changing.

Have you noticed
There seem to be
More storms?
