A plea to respect nature and wildlife

your say March 09, 2018 01:00

Somewhere in dark jungles, innocent fauna is preyed upon

Silhouetted miscreants predate the unaware without pity

The cracks of gunshot sound heavy and pithy

Dead nature is looked upon with hatred and scorn

Human nature today has turned victimising and cold

The death of a wild animal is vile pleasure’s play tool

Man the rational is indeed a poor fool

To tear down nature which is a part of him from old

Turn not your eyes away in shameless neglect

From nature’s blood marked on killer’s forehead

For though corruption’s greed marks civility’s death

Nature and wildlife our sustenance proves

If this reflection your human kindness moves

Support preservation of wildlife for humankind’s fuller wealth
