The human beast!!

The human beast reaches out

The smell of freedom in its snout,

It’s vital signs growing stronger

The hum of traffic - silent no longer-

Shouting over bird song symphony

That has recently kept it company.

 

The human beast reaches out

The smell of freedom in its snout,

Calloused claws  carelessly scarring

Nature’s fragile  skin- shedding

Human  excrement on its beauty,

Blatantly disregarding civic duty!

 

The human beast reaches out

The smell of freedom in its snout,

Awakening from its pandemic stupor

Flexing muscles- greed it’s seducer,

Thirst for his old self - desirous!

If only this beast realised - it’s the virus!

    Very true Sue, homo sapiens has been let out of its cage and started destroying nature once more - nature will have its revenge again, it cannot be beaten.
