Archives For ice cream
Sweet little baby Barely 10 days old Nursing from his mother Within the herd, he enfolds * He’s learning about lions Cheetahs and hyenas To fear and respect To hide and protect * Quietly nursing Mama pulls away A loud CRACK! Mama drops to lay * Baby so confused Frozen in fear Aunt Suzie comes along Back to the fold, she steers * They will kill anything Poachers are here Today it’s the elephants Tomorrow, the deer * Killing for pelts Tusks and horns Any sex, any age Trophies to be adorned * Bodies left dead Babies without mothers Mothers with no babies And so many others * Majestic creatures We should respect Becoming extinct Due to our neglect by Renee Robinson

If she is gone, he is a vulnerable, melting, shivering ice cream sunday. Easy target to be devoured.” I suppose the this dark thought came to me because, it just so happened I read a blog this morning with an article about poaching.
