One Price for Mankind’s Folly
Animals have been driven to the edge of extinction for Man's silliness.
|Teary-eyed, Mother Nature says to the rhinoceros,
“Man thinks there is an aphrodisiac in your horn.
Hence, you’re nearly extinct.” “How preposterous!”
says the rhinoceros. “Such stupidity is worthy of scorn.”
Next, Mother Nature says to the magnificent tiger,
“Likewise Mankind has hunted you as a cure
for his impotence. It’s your penis Man has a hunger
for.” The tiger asks, “My penis! Are you sure?”
The Tibetan red deer now asks, “What about me?
Is that the reason I’m nearly extinct? What part
of me could Man want for sex?” “It’s easy to see;
your velvety antlers go into their sexual shopping cart.”
Now the Asian bears speak up, “Is sex why Man
slaughtered us?” Mother Nature nods her head.
“Yes, for sex … plus medicinal reasons. They plan
on killing U.S. bears now; they may be soon dead.”
The animals all cry out, “For Mankind’s false belief
that our parts can improve his ability to have sex,
we have been made nearly extinct? That the chief
reason for our demise is so silly does sorely vex!”
