The Hunter

The hunter

I saw a man once on TV
He was hunting grizzly bear
Then bear, he got the upper hand
And blood was everywhere
That man was in an awful state
But I lacked in sympathy
You live by sword, you die by sword
That’s just the way it be.

I knew a man, a fisherman
He hunted for big fish
But when his boat did over turn
He never got his wish
Cause big shark came and took his life
And Karma, it was done
It seems that this time hunter lost
And mother nature won.

It seems some folk are low on soul
And only live to kill
I have no sympathy for these
And nor I ever will
When the game gets turned around
They’ve only they to blame
Because they gained their pleasure from
This heartless killing game.

    If you hunt for trophy, I heartly agree. To see it mounted on the wall is pure absurdity. But not all hunting is for waste. Sometimes I'm kinda glad myself for a little taste. Peace. :)

    ahh don't be so hard on the fisherman. Fish is excellent protein source and people have eaten fish for ages. But I do agree with your basic philosophy here. I abhor those that hunt for the pure pleasure of it!!

    I fished for years Andrea. It's just those trophy hunters I talk about. Hunting for food is one thing, but hunting purely for pleasure is something that makes me cringe...thanks for your comments, they are always most welcome..peter
