Madascar's bizarre lifeforms
In my travels I have seen ugly land. Lands of war and death,
however, I have also seen lands filled with bountiful grounds
could sustain an unquestionable amount of our rothers
and sisters- the animals.
Shadows of trees waltzing to the wind as the great plains
seem as a golden sea set aflame just as sunset.
From Peru, where most everything is the same as it was
And the great Sahara where our species birthed from.
The flourishing Congo and her magnificent volcanoes
And Madagascar's arresting enthusiasm for bizarre life
It all, in all aesthetic glory, means nothing except if the
creatures of earth couldn't share it.
And yet, to my eyes they are the saddest places on earth.
Sure, lush and stunning are these landscape es that bring
shock and awe-
But to me they are ugly, sad, and soon will show outward effects
when all turns to rubble, to dust...
How can Montana be God's country when wolves are extinct,
they shall no longer roam the nights searching, hunting, copulating and just
How can the immense and stunning Virunga mountain Range
still be a mystery in all her glory when the last silver back gorilla is
I assure you that it cannot.
Most just see the occasional tree, a small patch of green there, and
call the world as perfect ?
Ha! Only look a little deeper.
Now it's getting too late. Soon- all the last corners of earth
shall be be extinct.
