The poem(s) are below...



i saw birds pecking at a snake, 
to save nest of their fellow mate.
i saw a lioness standing against the lions pride, 
to save a calf, she did fight.

i saw monkeys fight a dog to save kitten, 
though in salvaging they got bitten.
these all made me think, 
there i love all around.

then i saw a man stabbing his friend, 
for money was more important in his ken.
i saw a woman killing her daughter, 
because she was not happy with the girl's father.

i saw a brother killing the other, 
with his own hand, 
just for a piece of land.
and all these made me think, 
animals are much more better.

who kill because of nature, just to feed.
on money, land and position they dont pay heed.
but humans are not humans any more.
who re infecting the world in whole.

going against their nature, 
as on money, land and position they pay heed.
and kill others even when they have all they need
they keep destroying each other.
