    13. 13. IMPORTANCE OF WILDLIFE Just listen o’killers, The poacher and hunters ! And stop intervening another kingdom. You say civilized you are, Yet going to spoil ecosystem. Don’t proud on being a human, If humanity you have lost, Mammals you always remember, A member of the family you intend to roast. Stop this nuisance, go back home, gruesome offence don’t commit it, Learn to love within your limits, Don’t appear as Neero to the Rome. “Might is right” never proves good, You live in colony, they live in woods. Let them live free from fear, Killing them shall, kill you dear ! Check your passion, the designs. Live within, don’t use outwits.
