HOW WRONG THEY ARE

I did not kill the cow;

I did not kill the calf!

My tastes are more profound;
You almost make me laugh!

I did not destroy your herd;

The thought is quite absurd,
I would not even think of it;
If my habitat lines werent blurred.

You claim game numbers are too low;
But, you are the cause of them you know.

And ranchers spin their tales,

hunters lie right through their teeth;

How elk numbers cant prevail.

You ranchers poisoned my children and then you shot my mate;

For them help just came too late!

And hunters slaughter us in horrid ways;

Snares keep us trapped for several days.

You treat nature without regard;
Now the wilderness bears your scars.

When you have succeeded in your task;
To rid the wolf at last.

You will find yet one more reason;
To have your killing season.

Your prey will know the strain;
Of living life under your tyrants reign.

You mislead others with folklore;
That the wolf is evil and at their door!

You claim you have been stalked,
While taking your dogs for a walk;

But, truth is I’m too weary of you, to lend truth to that talk.

It does little to tell you-you are wrong;
But you will be sorry when our kind is gone!

Your government possess the cogs to the deals;
In backrooms, politicians grease the wheels.

Another scheme fuels the machine;
Environmental restoration is never what it seems.

Wolf advocates and scientists alike, are filled with such desire;

Remaining entrenched to find the fix, exposing all the liars;

But, alas it is too late,
Our survival cannot wait.

Until such time man realizes,
Our worth and learns to compensate!

About wolvesbelongandwritingwrongs.com

Welcome to Wolves Belong and Writing Wrongs (With My Pen!) My name is Karen LaFountain, throughout my life I have been a writer of poetry and stories. My craft has always been a form of catharsis for my love of and angst of the natural world, its environment, and the social ills that so greatly affect the precarious balance between. So, I would like to introduce, Wolves Belong And Writing Wrongs. A website designed to educate the public of the peril to the our environment and the biodiversity of the inhabitants, like the grey wolf, and all wildlife that man's unethical acts, or deeds impact so significantly. My ultimate desire is to educate and advise the public through my writings, teachings, and activism' about the importance of our wilderness ecosystem and how wolves are a positive contributor necessary to maintain species biodiversity. It is my hope that my words may cause a more compassionate outlook and hopefullyenlighten the public to help bring an end the tragic consequences of putting financial profitability first and the natural balance of our wilderness ecosystem last by those that manage these invaluable assets. I believe that the gray wolf, (canis lupus), is an iconic and prolific cornerstone apex predator, that has a very positive impact on our ecosystem. Wolves, Grizzly Bears, other top predators are far more easily sacrificed to satisfy special interest groups with little thought to the severe negative impact to species proliferation or ecosystem health. .
