CONNETICUT MOUNTAIN LION

Updated on June 13, 2011

Spotted you were~

But they said you were not there~

To the area extinct~

Leaving your cave bare.

People swore they seen you~

But they said you were wiped out~

Vanished from this spot~

Your continuation was a doubt.

Your coat of pewter was seen on the run~

But they said your kin all died out~

Destroyed and we all to blame~

Their denial they did spout!

They’re story stayed the same!

Heard your cries were~

But they denied your existence~

Doubting your survival~

They official showed much resistance!

However now came the time~

With an unfortunate proof ending~

You are certainly here~

With your way of life pending.

Oh you beautiful creature~

If your being can stay~

Hopefully we will treat you different~

Co-existing to enjoy your way.

Come live amongst us again~

If we promise not to hurt you~

Come climb the mountains~

Once again~

Let what is left of the land lift you!

Let us hear your nightly calls once more~

Let us glimpse your muscular body safe from you~

Let us pray your species has been in this domain renewed!

      At one time I used to say how sad when an animal became endangered but no - now I say how savage. How savage to destroy an animal after we have destroyed the habitat and then have the nerve to say they are a scary nuisance - all they want is food, clear air and a place to live safely. Something I want.

      We forget that we are meant to share the earth with the other animals not destroy everything we touch. There is no excuse for this savagery.

      Thanks for a loving reminder.

      These cats are so beautiful and very endangered. We humans have taken their territories away. Thanks for this tribute to them.

      Once when hiking in Yosemite National Park, my girlfriend and I caught a glympse of one. They are such majestic looking cats. Hopefully they can live and their species prosper amongst we humans who keep infringing upon their natural territories.

      Great hub, a big cat has recently been spotted near where I live, most likely a Mountain Lion or as the old timers called them Panters.

      Man it seems is almost the singular reason for the extinction of wildlife. If as you say we could co-exist with other species my what a wonderful world this would be. Lovely poem very pugnent in todays world. Well done.
