Seal cub hunt


a curse lingers
each time an animal is killed
intense as the stomach turning blood
splattered all over
god's way to tell the sacredness of life
little wonder thou shalt not kill
climbed the ladder of the top commandments
if men would know war, every war
is a curse from animals
robbed of their right to live
just check the fates of whale hunters
the onasis and many others
how all these curses have come true
broken families, accidents, ugly deaths
just open wide your eyes, mind and heart
and you know why this poem has been written
