CONNETICUT MOUNTAIN LION
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~
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!
