Poachers in Zimbabwe are gradually reducing the Rhinos of the country to extinction. From 2,000 in 1980 to 530 in 2008 this is now a very precarious situation - as is everything else in that area of the world.

beautiful bush
great big horn
an animal created
brain so small
eyesight poor
enough to see the prize
peeling back leaves
delicate deciduous
munching moments
succulent sense of smell
ears hear you coming
waiting in anticipation
for that traquil moment.

hard skin vulnerable
scared of extinction
succumbing to death
stolen soul of species
flesh dark flushed
fallen four legs
a chink in the armour
medicine for stimulation
black market arrogance
hyperinflation plunders life
terrorising extinction
in a green yellow land
imploding as time passes.
