REMORSE OF THE RESENTFUL DOLPHIN

Skjálfandi Bay is home to many different cetaceans. Even though being famous for several big whale species such as the humpback and blue whales which visit these waters throughout the summer, also dolphins frequent the area and especially during June and July may show up in huge numbers. Whilst probably everyone is eager to spot and watch a big humpback whale go dive next to the boat, it's more often than not the dolphins that are the ones to show off. In respect of so many overseeing these slightly smaller cetaceans in order to find their big and massive cousins, our guide Trina Davies has written a poem from a dolphin's point of view.


REMORSE OF THE RESENTFUL DOLPHIN

Sorry you’re confusing me 
For the completely wrong guy 
I know we look alike 
This happens all the time

Yes, they swim in this sea 
And yes we’re kind of family 
But you’ve got the wrong address mate 
If you could leave that would be great

Wait, stop where are you going 
I didn’t mean it, don’t go 
I know you bought tickets 
To a different show

But I’m literally doing back flips 
Out the mother fucking sea 
And you hardly even turn 
To take a look at me

I live in the shadow 
Of the big fat whale 
No one takes photos 
Of my sad little tail

Why do I always 
Wash up second best 
Don’t wanna swim no more 
I feel depressed

For the record 
It hurts my self esteem 
That I’ve never 
Been part of your dream

Oh, put away your pity 
It’s too late for that now 
The shame of desperation 
As I cling to your bow

Look I’m having fun 
I’m riding in your waves 
Dolphins always have fun 
To fun we are slaves

There is no fun 
It’s an inbuilt smile 
I beg of you 
Please stay a while

Don’t leave me here 
With these moronic fools 
I was made for stardom 
I’m an oceanic jewel

Fine, on your way then 
Enjoy your whale hunt 
If you ever find the basturd 
Tell him he’s a …
