The Wildebeast

Save this animal from it's fate.
Before it is too late.
Don't sit back and watch the sight.
Of thousands of animals, day and night.
Pile up dead.

Help to save them.
You can too.
Don't talk. See it through.
A Thousand bulldozers, tractors, all.
A thousand drivers, mechanics, all.
The cliffs to fall.

They must migrate for food.
The way, we can show.
To come and go.
In safety and quality.
Without the terrible agony.

No holiday this year.
The money give here.
Sit on your sofa.
Think it over.
Watch them live not die.

    I like your philosophy. I think the Wildebeast is certainly worth saving. There are so many animals facing extinction if we don't do something to keep them alive. Your poem is very well written. Sad thoughts, however. Thanks much for sharing this sad and informative poem. PL
