An Eye For An Eye-A Tusk For A Tusk

An Eye For An Eye-A Tusk For A Tusk

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

Dear Charu,

I would love to see them start "to pay the rightful recompense", while still here on Earth.
This graphic photo brought tears to Linda's and my eyes.
The "Beast", destroying such "Beauty".
Thank you for your most beautiful comment.

Love,

Dear Tina,

My message to the poachers is:
"We're gonna tie one on".
The Elephants are gonna do "The Bristol Stomp".
"And in the jungle, the mighty jungle, the Lions lurk tonight".

Love,

Dear Larry,
I have a sneaky feeling that if Zimbabwe's law allowed Akashinga would have a lower arrest rate and many, many more notches on their rifle stocks. Personally I'm with you on this.

Dear Nigel,

I personally feel that "notches on their rifle stocks", is too quick a death for these monsters.  I much prefer watching them in sheer terror, as the "hunters", become the "hunted".
Again, I thank you so much for your great inspirational poem.
I have long been an animal advocate, and been irate with these atrocities.

Peace and Love,
