Greed

Why hunt, why greed
Oh superior, human being?
My heart ‘s so sore.
Those eyes, …that pain,
Dying a slow death for human gain.
Such love, such hope, to animals in need
Silverbacks, bears, elephants and more.
What are we doing?
Does anyone really score?

Killing the circle of life,
Is killing the need of our breed.
Let’s stop the madness,
Let’s take control
Let’s wipe out the need
For corruptible, man-enforced ,  greed.
Our souls are joined,
That’s no mistake,
We need to do a double-take.
