Life is precious

Life is precious

Life is precious, they say

We are responsible, they say

But when they are realy needed

They have never heeded

 

Animals will die, they say

We are not responsible, they say

But they know, not feeding

Will kill in a terrible way

 

A park to look at, they say

With grass, water and food

But the winters will test

The only survivers will be the best

 

A park for animals, they say

Where animal have to stay

Until they die, there is no way

They can survive to this day

 

By Marinus Kruissen, after reading an article on the animals in a Dutch “game park” The Oostvaardersplassen, where animals are left to die of starvation, and nobody seems to care, least of all the Animal Protection and Forrestry agency of The Netherlands, (Staatsbosbeheer)
