National Poetry Day Message Poem by Joey Andrews

To Humans – Message from a lone wolf


Why humans,

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.
