Majestic

Nae's Nest —  April 10, 2012 — 2 Comments
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

The picture attached does not match the poem.  However, when I looked at this whimsical picture, for some reason, my first thought was–” he needs his mother to teach him how to survive.  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.  If you are interested in reading this article the address is:  http://1oneday.wordpress.com/   We are the voice for these wonderful creatures.  Let them hear us ROAR!
