Treasure Island

Jon M. Nelson

(August 23,1975 / Milaca, MN)

Extinction


How can the world really be at peace,
When it is slowly being destroyed?
When any species becomes extinct,
It will definitely leave a void.

How will we tell the future generations,
That they don't have the pleasure,
Of knowing and understanding
How much these animals were a treasure?

Too many species are no longer here,
Because man just could not foresee,
How he'd lead them to their extinction,
By his completely senseless killing spree.

poet Rupert Brooke

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;
