Extinction - Poem by Daniel Bernard Kelleher

Walking around the zoological gardens
A beautiful collection of animals
Scattered around are breeding dens
For animals under threat of extinction

Breeding enclosure's are necessary
In the wild their hunted excessively
Hunters know by their actions
That specie's face extinction

The Tigers are just one of many
Three breeds already lost
Hunting and erosion of habitats
The cause of ongoing tragedies


The Cheetah, the Lion the Mountain Gorilla
The Panda, the Polar bear the Artic Fox
The leopard, the Snow Leopard
In the wild beautiful to see
