Extinct - Poem by Phil Soar

We destroy animals like we throw away our rubbish
we don't distinguish them as viable
only for what we believe they should be used for
and we should be disgusted for the vile way we treat them
but so few of us call for an end to the cull
the outwardly cowardice of the poachers and hunters
blot the copybook of those who care
but still it continues and they become extinct
and future generations may never know their beauty
never understand their right to be here
and we go down in history as survivors
whilst we had scant regard the those we share the planet with
until they are no longer here
we should be ashamed
