To A Rhinoceros - Poem by Hilaire Belloc

Rhinoceros, your hide looks all undone,
You do not take my fancy in the least:
You have a horn where other brutes have none:
Rhinoceros, you are an ugly beast.

    mmm...
    alas.. the mighty, poor rhinos are exterminated by stupid human beings.. by their greed.. just because of their keratin horn..! They are not 'ugly': they are beautiful, wonderful creatures.. that would only live their peaceful lives.. (Report) Reply
