What have the humans done?
The greed of money and power
Made them ravenous for you.
You do not belong trapped inside
many cages swimming in filth
and disgusting, dirty containers
filled with slime and grime as
you await to be picked, bought,
slaughtered, gutted and enjoyed
by greedy humans indulging in
tasting a “novelty” meat and
trying a wild animal as “luxury”.
Nature, you have made us pay
A price, a huge, major price,
for unsanitary greed and power
by gifting us a small coronavirus.
So powerful and so destructive.
Your message to us humans sends
shivers down my immune system.
THIS IS OUR RESPONSE TO YOU
HUMANS FOR REFUSING TO
RESPECT OUR EXISTENCE
AND LEAVE OUR BEINGS ALONE!
LEAVE US ALONE HUMANS!
I hear you; I hope all humans do.
I apologize to you on behalf
Of all of humanity in the world.
I respect nature, I respect you.
I am sorry humans failed you.
