Yongki - Poem by Phil Soar

We claimed that we're civilised
How can that be?
How can we claim we are top of the tree?
We kill for no reason
And Yongki lies still
Murdered by someone who hides in the hill

The sight of that elephant
Lying there, dead
Fills me with such a phenomenal dread
Civilised?
NO
We have no right to say
They were here before us
And should be left to their ways

My tears were unhelpful
They just hide my pain
More animals killed with little restraint
Civilised?
NO
We're not worth that description
How will we all feel after animal extinction?
