Cry Of The Wild

It is a measure of man as a species
How he treats the realm of nature.
Man is still a hunter gatherer of food
And clothing and wild animals suffer.

Man no longer hunts to meet wants
And needs but plunders natures
Resources almost to the very point
Of extinction of entire species.

Worse is the man who hunts for profit
Who with total disregard of nature
Kills rhino for their horn and elephant
For their tusk and tiger for their bones.

Evil is the man who rapes nature with
Impunity. Misguided is the man who
Uses the product of poachers and
Blind are the governments who allow
This to happen. Nature cry's out loud.

    A very right narration. Ppossibly the creator is now repenting with tears in eyes for creating this human beings who are now snarling with their long teeth & nails and suck this nature.

    Nature is there for everyone's need, but not for everyone's greed! So said MKG. A wonderful write it is sir!

  • Valsa George (9/6/2013 3:33:00 AM)

    Man plunders Nature, not for his need alone, but often to satisfy his greed and we shamelessly encourage poachers by buying their products! Govts also close their eyes against man's cruel rape of Nature with impunity! A poem expressing genuine concern over the assault on Nature!
