That low guttural squawk
At dusk.
Guardian of the Forest
Some say Creator of Mankind.
What do you think
About the destruction of your forests?
The pollution of your waters?
The killing?
What do you think of these humans
With guns and traps and poisons
And four-wheeled vehicles
That are destroying your world?
