In Search of an Answer

The full moon brightened the African plain

And slivers of moonlight danced

The poachers were up to their old tricks once more

With a bunch of money to gain.

 Rhino-Reward-South-Africa

The Rhino was unaware of her fate that night

While grazing on the grass

Her baby laid cocooned in her womb

Until the bad men came to fight.

 

They shot her once and then once more

With no feelings of remorse

They worried not whether she suffered from pain

As they watched her fall like many before.

 

They severed her horn and half of her face

Whilst she lay in the darkness in pain

They moved quite fast leaving nothing behind

But bloodshed and shame on the human race.

 

As she took her last breath on that fateful night

People raced to her side to help

But she had died and her baby had too

They were greeted by a saddening sight.

 

We cannot continue to let this go on

We certainly can’t do it alone

We need the world to help us fight

And continue till the battle’s been won.

 

Mother Africa bowed her head, and wept …….
