Funday Times - A Poem for the week

A plea to humans
By Bhagya Pandithakoralege (11 years), St. Bridget's Convent

We, creatures have a plea,
On the earth, air and sea,
Some people are not kind,
We think they are blind.

Edible swifts have to rest,
In their small cozy nest,
Humans destroy our eggs,
And rob our tiny nests.

Busy bees are we,
Collect honey from flowers you see,
Humans squeeze our honey,
And sell them for money.

Turtle shells, crocodile skins,
Pea-cock feathers, tiger skins,
Mother shell pearls, elephant tusks,
Are taken away by humans.

For creatures of the world,
Biggest foe is the human world.
We ask in a humble tone,
Please leave us alone.
