Greedy Eagles - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Even the eagles' greed have killed them!
Can you believe?
Bald eagles wet and can not fly?
Gorging themselves over wasted fish to die!
And when the temperatures dipped,
Into freezing 'teens'...
At least nineteen of fifty greedy eagles,
Were frozen wet and had met their deaths.
And 'they' are the symbols of this land!
Just how far,
A land where greed and mankind,
Have gotten out of hand!
To feast and die,
That does not guarantee or provide survival!
Not their own,
This report was made January 12th 2008.
Occuring in or near Kodiak, Alaska.
