This would be ideal. But the realisation is the natives have their tradations. They know when and how much. The
rest of us should do everything in our power not letting these animals perish. Bravo! Encore! Please read and comment on my latest
you CAN'T return such items to their former owners! but....Mankind has evolved [i'm pretty sure], at first dependent on wild plants and animals for sustenance/survival. now 'hunting' is more for sport, though some hunters eat their prey. i suppose the prey rarely gets to eat the hunter.
They are selfishly and greedily
Alas! Alas! Alas! ....... for those destroyers, killers hypocrite we are losing day by day everything,
For those greedy, inhuman, namely humans were are losing not only flora and fauna gradually everything, a great attempt and attention to other is extraordinarily approached in the poem, thanks for sharing the poem with us here in PoemHunter, + 10
Peep through binoculars
instead of through guns
Shoot 'em' with cameras
instead of weapons
Thank you my dear poet for this nice message, the poem reflects your deep concern for the cute animals around us in this planet getting extinct every passing day.
You have rendered a very subtle social message too to shoot them in the desired manner.
I am overwhelmed at reading such a sensible poem from you.
May God provide you the most pleasant poetic air around you so that you deliver to this world of poetry for years to come.
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.
