Falling of the Edge of the World

I travelled into my thoughts To somewhere I've never been The horrors that awaited me Took me to our human extreme I cried when I looked through The windows of our past And marvelled at what she gave us I was left in total aghast In the year two thousand and six Seven hundred and eighty four That graced the lands we borrow Were shown the extinction door The Tasmanian Devil never nasty To the Wolves that roamed Alba's land The Dodo so strange a bird Were in natures future plans Twenty eleven now awaits us Whilst us humans continually strive Nine hundred and five is now the total That will never be found alive Us humans, before we go to sleep Their falling of the edge of the world But hey! we'll never change We're ignorant, and incredibly absurd

Your words are so true, the neglect to the wild animals and to nature in general is heartbreaking, well done~~
