ZOO TACTIC

They shot another cub today
wolf-hate burning in their brain.
Clever escape by a creature's plan
where humans operate in vain.

There's a serious lack of sympathy
where men compete with wolves and ways.
Our arrogance ignited by a jealous spark
puts sanity to ashes in a major blaze.

The wolf is lost before it is found
so blind are we to creation's place.
Prejudice and greed, unsubtle, yet profound
hint a sad demise for the human race.

For without diversity to showcase God
comes the loneliness to make us at once insane.
Wolves and other wilderness essences
test the life-blood of life's blessed domain.

- Owen R. Neill, Canada
