decades of poaching…

decades of poaching

never
has it flown
nor
soared
the skies
though
legend
has said
it could
used for years
to soothe
the tears
of those fallen
by war
a traditional medicine
offered
to cure
all kinds
of ills
yet still
it’s been starved
to feed a few
and
sold
for profit
this bird
called
freedom
