for cecil the lion and all the other cecils, past present and hopefully, not future

slaughtered why
did cecil die.
a lion's life
he lead.
a human monster
fueled by need for
blood,
and now,
the great lion
is dead.
what did it do
make him feel
more of a man
with weapons
in his hand.
where was his heart
when this vicious act
was executed
and planned.
we of compassion
cannot comprehend
why in this manner
this great lion
came to an end.
perhaps, mr palmer
your heart will be awake,
when again another life
you decide to take.

rest in peace,
great king of beasts

About Me

My photo
i am older than dirt and proud of it!!!! i have managed to incorporate my eternal 60's nation spirit with the high tech 21st century world. i am an artist/writer, who dabbles in rhyme, and, sometimes, reason. my passions are my husband, who is truly the wind that ruffles my sails, animals rights, yoga, the beach, waking up in the morning. i find inspiration in too many things to list, and far too many more to remember. i have added sketching, watercolor painting, and photography to my ways of expressing joy and gratitude. from living with a chronic illness, i have learned the beauty of each day, and treat each as another sun salutation, and another chance. P.S. all painting, poems and photographs are my originals karen Lyons kalmenson
