The Last Bonobo
The last bonobo was shot today
Joining the jaguars and the whales.
The chimpanzees butchered for their meat
Pangolins stabbed for their scales.
The orangutans have nowhere to live.
Forests cleared for palm oil.
Temperatures are rising.
Soon seas will start to boil.
Opher – 30.10.2020
I shudder when I see what we are doing to the planet – so many gorgeous creatures being wiped out; so many animals being tortured and treated so cruelly.
We are the mindless intelligence. We seem oblivious in our arrogance. We lack empathy.
We will despair if our pet cat or dog gets injured but cannot in any way apply that to wild animals.
