The Chase


man’s greed.


orangutans 

The land opposite mine  

  densely planted with oil palm

closely populated by a tribe 

 a busy clan never calm

hooligans who take no bribe 

mischievous and up to folly 

oscillate and swing in a mood

break the branch when jolly

gnaw the berries in all crude 

chatter and  whimper all through

Lo! the trees  are now cut  invariably

their habitation is in a mess absolute

sit there they in all melancholy

with their brood in dissolute 

Alas! man  always engages in a chase

scares the orangutans  from their place
