National Poetry Day Message Poem by Joey Andrews
To Humans – Message from a lone wolf
Do you come to me,
Separate my pack,
Lock me in a cold cage,
Wear my family off your backs?
I sit there in that lonely cage,
But Nay! A friend arrives,
Behold yet it’s an empty shell,
For as your coat it flies.
But now I’m free and snow falls low,
While dust streaking my fur,
I see my favourite hunting spot,
Is also now your turf.
And as I write this, looking up,
My moon lights up the sky,
Will you take that from me as well?
I’d like to see you try.
