We reap what we sow

Red and hairy 
Brown eyed and wistful
Long lanky arms 
That swing from tree to tree

Sweet gentle red man
Of Borneo forests
The greedy have taken 
Away your home

Your forests, your food, your memories
Your families - now fading into history’s mist
They have sold you to Cesar and forgot  
God made you

    So many precious creature just don't exist any more and others are endangered. Always so sad to hear these things. If only greed weren't a way of life for some. A timely verse Brenda and thank you for your kind visit.

    The orangutan was featured on a 5000 rupiah silver coin minted for Indonesia by a private British mint back in 1973. There was a Javan tiger on the 2000 rupiah coin, but unfortunately, that species is now extinct. You have described this endangered species quite well with your words.

    It breaks my heart Robert, mankind is so destructive. I didn't know about the coins that is amazing; prophetic maybe? all the best and thank you, Brenda : )
