Sam I Am

by Nora Jay

“[S]almon ‘sue’ US city over harm to population
The lawsuit brought on behalf of the salmon says that river damming
infringes on the fish’s ‘inherent right to exist’”
The Guardian

One side I decisively am on
Is this of the suit-bringing Salmon:
For them I’ll enlist
To assist to exist:
Damn dams! I’m for Salmon v. Mammon.
