My Art & Poems






The rhino has lived for millions of years,
Who are we to destroy it,  just ’cause of superstitous fears,

Enormous, enchanting, beautiful beast,
He needs our voice, let’s give him that, at least!

Greedy poachers, breaking the laws,
Always wanting more and more.

Killing up to two a day,
Imminent extinction!  Please, no way!

Listen to these creatures cry out in pain,
Poachers, you should hang your head in shame.

The acrid reek of death fills the hungers soul,
Help me please, this is getting out of control.

I saw a rhino, his horn had been cut away,
Barely breathing, unable to smile or play.

My eyes are filled with tears, come on, join my crusade,
Let’s do all we can to end this sickening trade!

You may say I am only seven,
But I dont want the animals to go to heaven.

before they have a decent life,
I don’t want them to be cut up with the butchers knife.

You may say I am rather small,
But what I believe in my heart is big and tall.

Endangered animals need to be saved,
those who hunt and  kill them are depraved.

Michael I hear you do a funny pitch,
But it is no joke when the red lemur ends in the ditch>

David I hear you are from the big USA,
So help us to keep greedy poachers away.

Forget Baywatch – lets animal watch eh !
Beautiful, peace loving vegetarian Amanda,
You share these traits with the giant panda.

The black rhino has lived for a million years,
Why kill it for its horns, that’s just superstitious fears.

The African Wild Dog,
The Pigmy Hog,
The Hamilton Frog,
The Hispid Hare,
The Polar Bear,
The Common Skate-
Who are WE to decide their fate !!

Olivia Binfield Age 7
