Inspired by Nigel Cresswell’s powerful poem “Akashinga-The Brave Ones”
I have a great solution, for those poachers so inhumane;
Who kill multitudes of magnificent creatures, just for financial gain!
The Elephants and Rhinoceros, they steal their ivory tusks;
Their starving offspring’s moaning, can be heard from dawn to dusk!
They also shoot the Tigers, to take their most prized pelts;
The Lions and the Zebras too, no sympathy is felt!
The slaughter of God’s children, has got to quickly end;
For against the hunter’s rifles, they are powerless to fend!
My plan is very simple, no bloodshed on demand;
When caught in the act of poaching, we bind their legs and hands!
Then lay them out in the grass plains, their prey to judicate;
The larger ones to trample them, others, for a meal great!
We sit back and make a movie, called “Retribution And Demise”;
Then distribute it to the nations, where poaching’s on the rise!
I guarantee when they see it, these thieves will instantly be stopped;
They will find a new profession, when they see their cohorts dropped!
An eye for an eye
The poachers become the prey
Our problem solved
