Okay I give.. What do you think of my poem about wolves?

No Wolves to Howl

Grizzled with greying winter pelt

the mournful wolf sings heart-felt

Days of torture, lonely past

his brethren lost to rifle blast

For money, fun or grisly sport

man extinguishes life with laughing retort

No rhyme nor reason to slay such beauty

hunters sport, farmers duty

Innocent canine, free of crime

No slaughter soils his jaws this time

Yet still pursued with fearful hate

his extinction many men await

What hatred of Nature fuels such fire?

and fills mankind with killing desire

Man's best friend, his gift to us-free

a gift forgotten by many I see

A hero, protector, loyal friend

who'd give life for you at bitter end

Yet still their fathers we hunt with ire

taking our reasons from the lips of liars

Still twitching fetuses from the bellies of deer you say?

Man has done the same before today

Still worse we do in everyday life

Murder, war, rape and strife

Judge not the wolf who hunts to survive

against humans who kill just because we are alive

When will we see what we have done?

No wolves to howl for our sons...

PS The "twitching fetuses" part is an inside reference, I had a debate in my local paper with a man who used that as a reason why wolves are "evil".. which from my experience is not at all true. Anyway feel free to share your feelings on the poem or the issues it expresses.


Thanks William B! I appreciate the compliment!

    A beautiful rendition of a heartbreaking truth! That was truly wonderful, Kelly.

    You'll have to elaborate about the twitching foetuses bit for me sometime although I sense it'll frustrate me.

    I love it! Its sad and sad that its true.

    Wolves are wonderful animals. I have always loved them. They're smart and loyal and loving. They are the first link in our dogs.

    I now own 3 wolf mixes and can tell you that they are great. The intelligence in them is unmatched by any dog I've ever owned. The are the most loyal, loving, caring and protective animals I've had the blessing of having. They will risk their own life to save a member of their pack, as mine have done on a few occasions because I can be a bit clumsy. They have protected my son and husband too. If you would like to here of their loyalty, love, dedication, determination, and just over all wonderful nature please email me and I will share my life with wolf mixes.
