An Orangutan's Plea


I'd just like to say, "Please,
Will you leave us our trees.
They make a beautiful home,
And we'd rather not roam.
I don't like this palm oil,
That keeps taking forest soil.
It would be best for our health,
If you put it back on the shelf.
Then tell everyone why,
You did not buy."

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
