    in poets notes: an apostrophe got poached i guess. ;)

    i too 'love' animals..............wild ones which are not gnawing or picking on my of course! but do we also stop lions from killing antelopes? or leopards from killing pythons? or perhaps an eagle from killing a peafowl? ?

    yes, 'animals' seem to kill mostly for food or protection, or so it seems. or for mates perhaps.

    and one definition of animals will include Homo sapiens/Humans! some animals i think kill for sport, e.g. 'house cats' which catch and 'play with' mice, grasshoppers and whatnot and often kill (i think) without eating the prey.

    i believe that humans and their ancestors killed for other than sport, or decorations, or shoes and handbags. now, for many humans, hunting is considered their right. and some animals, including fish, are managed for humans to kill as 'hunters'.and 'fishermen'.

    now, how about humans who go to their markets/grocery stores and buy dead animals or food containing parts of dead animals? ?

    i don't believe in God, but many do and my Christian church had in the Bible that 'men' were to use the Earth and its resources for their purposes (i believe that is at least partly accurate) .

    where does one draw the line? which animals are more important to protect, domestic chickens or birds-of-paradise? ? are any more 'important' than another? ?

    if polar bears become extinct, will the Earth fall apart? so many questions. but your poem does make your point very clear.

    as a kid i sometimes shot at birds, not really wanting to hit them of course, though i did at least three times. i cried once and buried the sparrow where my crime would not be noticed!

    now you see why i run out of time on the computer! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

    A very sad, and very true poem. The famous, and protected, lion Cecil was killed by an American dentist last week. I just read today that his brother Jericho, who has been protecting Cecil's cubs, was shot and killed today. I don't know why some people are so cruel?
    I wish more people would read, and learn from, such thoughtful poem's such as yours.

    How do you return a severed tusk to the elephant?
    Fur to the lynx cat?
    Skinned skin to the python?
    Or ripped feathers to the peacock?

    Peep through binoculars
    instead of through guns
    Shoot 'em' with cameras
    instead of weapons
    O' hunters shun hunting
    with darned shotguns!
    Amazing message, amazing poem................10

    Beautiful poem touching indeed. Great message.....
    Still how do you restore
    this lost and found to their rightful owners?

    Each lines are beautifully portrayed. very true said, How do you return a severed tusk to the elephant? It's not possible to return back the lost after finding it. No one can fix it back. In this case even if found it's of no use. The damage is already done. Lost is lost forever.

    Very well deserved poem of the day! Congrats. Superb write. Loved it.
