We need to join forces to save out planet, before it's too late. This is what this poem is all about!!

Tears of a Lion

In the dusty desolate desert

Where once life abundant and thriving 

Stands a solitary, starving young lion

Weakened, diseased but still striving



With tears in his crusty wise eyes

And last glare of sober defiance

At he who wrecked havoc and mayhem

With technology and burgeoning science



With man’s greed and arrogant needs

He has plundered and pilfered and raped

And stolen the essence of nature

Rearranged, destroyed and reshaped



For nothing exists in this barren wasteland

Except dust, noxious gases and death

For man has created this lion’s demise

Nothing moves, nothing stirs, not a breath



As he struggles to take his last bow

And lowers his head to the ground

Last sigh from the king of the jungle

The end of all of life and all sound

Heartfelt, touching, poem. Greed and envy are the worst of human weaknesses and they can destroy everything in their way without rhyme or reason - siva
