I catch a scent in the wind that comes from the east

My paws plodding on, with hunger not ceased

Food for me, & my family i hope for, at least

The scent it does thicken, my pace does increase

Through the thickets, my eyes spy an unanticipated feast

There, on the snow, lays the corpse of some poor beast

I take a snowy step, my paw sinks in cold depth

My stomach is knotted, as i cross this frozen Lethe

A sudden blast, like burning glass, hits me with strength

The smell of hot metal, & ammonia enwreath

My family flashes before my eyes as I breath my last breath

The vulgarity lurking, sits filming my death.

Evil and wicked, those are not my names

Those are reserved for those calling me game

The ones that hone a sight to aim

Technology wielding, & looking to maim

The ones that spill our blood for fame

& their voyeur blood groupies that look at their frames

(Animal death porn, it’s a damn dark shame)

The wicked gun loaders

The evil trap setters

The villainous venomous vile lie spreaders

Poisoning my kind, for their sick pleasure

Baiting me with food, & you think that it’s clever?

This life ending bullet destroyed my family forever

An essential being was gunned down

By some ignorant, weapon toting clown

A cowardly thug, when you boil it down

Extinction of a species, tick tock, countdown

Killing the wolves on Fudd hyperbole grounds.

You loathsome, hideous, shameful turd

Your fetid mind corroded and disturbed

Bloody gore carnage, your lifestyle preferred

Killing animals with guns, it’s fucking absurd

Waging war on a free being, covered in fur.
