Fauna's Lost And Found! - Poem by S.zaynub Kamoonpuri

To purses of leather
one lost its skin
One lost its feather
to hats and decors
Another lost its fur
to those mink coats
One lost its tooth
to ivory bangles gosh!

Many lost their lives
to heartless hunters
Not only are they
on animal property encroaching
They are selfishly and greedily
also poaching
Alas! Alas! Alas!
Woe to that cut throat
fine and fancy fur coat
They lost it all to ruthless
merciless, thoughtless poachers
And even if this lost was found later
and confiscated by officers
Still how do you restore
this lost and found
to their rightful owners?
How do you return a severed tusk to the elephant?
Fur to the lynx cat?
Skinned skins to the python?
Or ripped feathers to the peacock?
And how do you restore life
to the poor dead fauna
As long as poaching is rife
Relax not in beach or sauna.

Peep through binoculars
instead of through guns
Shoot 'em' with cameras
instead of weapons
O' hunters shun hunting
with darned shotguns!

    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. (Report) Reply

    Beautiful poem touching indeed. Great message.....
    Still how do you restore
    this lost and found to their rightful owners?

    Each lines are beautifully portrayed. very true said, How do you return a severed tusk to the elephant? It's not possible to return back the lost after finding it. No one can fix it back. In this case even if found it's of no use. The damage is already done. Lost is lost forever.

    Very well deserved poem of the day! Congrats. Superb write. Loved it. (Report) Reply

    Bravo for unleashing your emotions. That is what poetry thrives upon. Unfortunately fashion trends come and go. Today it is more the poacher than the game hunter to fear. Killing a 2,000 pound rhino for just a few ounces of ground dust from it's horn is absolutely atrocious. Things like this should remain in the forefront of the public's minds. (Report) Reply
