WHALES 2

Killer whales. They have learned that grey whales follow traditional routes. The killers have no trouble in overtaking a calf and its devoted mother. Normally they continually call to one another. But now they have fallen silent. The mother grey whale and her calf have no idea that they’ve been targeted. Catching up with the grey whales is the easy part for the killers. They have to be cautious for they are only about half the size of the grey whale mother. She can inflict real damage with her tail. But the killers are not after her. They are after her calf. As long as the mother can keep it on the move it will be safe. And she does her best to hurry it along.
At first the killers avoid getting too close to the mother but just keep pace alongside. They know that the calf going at this speed will eventually tire. After three hours of being hurried in this way the calf becomes too exhausted to swim any further. The mother has to stop. This is the moment the killers have been waiting for. They start to try and force themselves between mother and calf. The calf separated from its mother will not be able to defend itself. Time and again the black fins of the killers appear between the mottled backs of the grey whales. At last the killers succeed. And now that they’ve got the calf on its own they change their tactics. They leap right onto the calf and try to push it under. They’re trying to drown it. The calf snatches a desperate breath.

Shape Of My Heart - Sting

He deals the cards as a meditation.
And those he plays never suspect
He doesn't play for the money he wins,
He doesn't play for the respect.
He deals the cards to find the answer,
The sacred geometry of chance,
The hidden law of probable outcome.
The numbers lead a dance.

I know that the spades are the swords of a soldier.
I know that the clubs are weapons of war.
I know that diamonds mean money for this art.
But that's not the shape of my heart.

He may play the jack of diamonds.
He may lay the queen of spades.
He may conceal a king in his hand
While the memory of it fades.

Chorus:

And if I told you that I loved you
You'd maybe think there's something wrong.
I'm not a man of too many faces.
The mask I wear is one.
Those who speak know nothing and find out to their cost
Like those who curse their luck in too many places.
And those who fear are lost.
