the Tasmanian tiger

The Tasmanian tiger

 

 The last one died in captivity in 1936

 and that was a sad moment for humanity,

added to the list of animals we have eliminated over the years.

The Tasmanian tiger was easy to kill. It didn´t know

how cruel we are.

There have been sightings of it by gullible people, but it is an illusion

based on regrets and unspoken longings.

I, also hope, it exists somewhere, but it is a dream,

yet I have seen the animal in clouds formation in the sky

forever condemning us for what we did.

Hi Jan, this subject also fascinates me. You’ll find my own poem on the subject on my blog. It’s called Thylacine. The last one in existence can be seen on YouTube. Tony
