Wild Boar


Wild boar enters the field

Tampers with the crop

Leaves the farmer aghast

To see his labour lost

Time and money spend

 Is not the boar’s concern

They come in troops

Trample the field in just a run

 It’s not for food, just for fun

 Time to declare war

 Keep the boar at bay

Or things will go out of hand

 And people will have to leave the land

Take this up in parliament

Save the farmer if you can

Farming and conservation should go hand in hand

    Thank you Andy

    Perhaps the crucial question: Are your boars indigenous or an introduced species?

    If introduced , then remove humanely.

    If indigenous, then too many people.

  • L. B. Mek

    'mostly' Vegans, demanded
    an end to barbaric hunting traditions
    little understanding
    it's their veggies, that were being protected
    with all those hunting traditions (however diabolically bloodthirsty, in execution)..
    now we have foxes hawling in city streets
    and being trampled on our motorways,
    and here come the revival of the boar's
    those great, all-consuming bullies
    who swagger in packs
    and churn-up
    a formers, toiled fields of hope..
    now what to do
    I can't wait for those same 'mostly' vegan's
    to start marching about their veggie shortages...
    (forgive me if I stepped on any toes
    just a little dark humour
    and yes, I know and agree
    banning hunting's vial practises
    was a great achievement
    for modernity
    and no, I have nothing against Vegan's

      I totally agree with you.Sometimes people are just fanatic in what they believe and just forget that nature needs a balance.like the law of the jungle just live and let live

      Indigenous of course but too many is too much and they move àway from forest and into the field

      • Doggerel Dave

        You talking to me? Why have they moved from the forest? Too much forest taken from them?
