WHY

The Asian Tiger walks deaths bed, a tenuous thread, 
Shaming us standing ones with maggots in our heads.
The African Rhino and Elephant walk their likewise fate, 
Valued by us as horny dust, adornments for human plates.
It will always forever amaze me, when too late we always say, 
What we regret most in this life... is the treasure we abused on the way.

Thanks for your kind words fellow Souper's... I enjoy writing about breaking news items and personal stuff... I tend to rhyme along but don't really consier myself poet, and certainly don't understand the structural variations of what may stand for good poetry: there are clearly many here that do and I look forward to spending time amongst their lines, including yours, and I'm sure inspiration will come my way. Thanks again, nice people! Dennis.

Hi Dennis, , Stopping by with a nice, sweet Welcome to Poetry Soup. I will find much delight, in reading and in time become familiar with your way of writing. But, for the mean time, I will greet you with the same smile, other poets passed when I first join the soup 4 years ago. I wish you the best when it comes to your poems. I hope you get to meet all the nice poets around here. Starting with me. SKAT :-) Please drop a hello and tell me a little about yourself if you like. I would like to be your newest poetry soup "FRIEND". Hugs* SKAT
