I watch you on the safari.
There you go…rhinoceros
To think that you are murdered
They search through the thicket and thorns
For your God given horns
That’s so preposterous!
Sadly, you are unable to roam freely.
You are being threatened by slaughter.
Even when you try to sap cool water.
They ignore nature.
All for a horn.
This illegal trade… they kill for a prize
Humankind and their glutinous greed.
This is a mockery of nature.
They don’t care, its only about need
So, the rhino is left to die and bleed.
All for selfish greed.
Don’t worry nature will return.
Armed with her pitchfork.
