Kevin Carter,a Vulture and Dying Baby In Sudan!

Updated on July 19, 2013

Kevin carter
And a vulture
Signed a truce
long time ago
Some say in the Zoo
Some say in Timbuctoo
But nobody knows
Where they hid the poo

In 93,
Under a hot scorching sun
They stood
Close to a starving Sudanese child
Yet, few steps away from each other
With different agendas
In fact ,only the dying child
their own sole prey.
Kevin zoomed his camera lens
And the vulture sharpened his claws
Ready to pounce
And then the fate stroke
Fitting the plan
Kevin got Pulitzer Prize
Vulture sustenance
Child heaven!

      Wow, it is moments like the one you describe that need to be brought to the forefront of our lives. Thank you for taking on the resposibility of letting us know how the people at the other end of the camera needed a hand not a photograph. Jamie

      Gentle Wolf,

      I just went and researched a little about this Kevin Carter, as I must admit, I hadn't known who he was. I know we all have our jobs to do, but I don't believe I could ever stand next to a starving child and see it as an opportunity to put food on my table. Perhaps it bothered him after the fact as I read he killed himself.

      I appreciate your standing up and speaking out James, you are a brave and courageous soul!

      Hugs and love to you dear!
