[Poem][Visual Feast]


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.

10 Tigers Reportedly Slaughtered for ‘Visual Feast’

Visual Feast


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
