Something that I thought was impossible to happen in this day, has happened. 10 tigers were slaughtered purely for what people are describing as a ‘visual feast,’ purely for the entertainment value of being wealthy enough to afford such a display. I can think of no other means of describing such a cruel act than as disguising, disturbing, and unbelievably selfish of these people to think they had the right to do such a thing. I hope these people are being made to pay in some way for what they’ve taken away from the rest of us.
They don’t deserve the natural gift they’ve been given
They see flesh and fur, bones and organs
‘Medical’ ingredients that proves no more effective than placeboes
The world sees beauty and magnificent
Perseverance against the ignorant of their endangerment
The world sees and is disguised those that took part
Our own visual feast of what modern day monsters look like
Their selfish distain for thinking they held an ounce of a right
To take away so many precious live that could have brought so many more in to the world
What gave them the right to think they could kill the endangered?
Because of their money? Because they could afford the price tag?
What is the price of their shame now?
Now that the world knows what they did, what they are
How much money will they throw at us to make us forgive, to make us forget?
Not enough for their visual feast to have been worth it
Perhaps if these people threw their money the opposite way
Towards making 10 more lives instead of taking them
Their names would be held in honour in saving the endangered
Instead of our own feasting on their demise
