RIP, Cecil.

I understand this wonderful picture
Could never
Do you justice. Now
We will never know just how
Much. Now
We will never get to see you
Up close and scores of children will never see you
And say, “Wow!”
And all because some cunt
Of a hunter
Paid silly
To hunt you down,
To impress his
Friends with something that was never his.
I hope one day
Soon he feels deeply
Ashamed and I hope he
One day
What he has stolen from our hearts.
