My testament

So their arrogance created
An energy in me
Their vile MANIpulation
My philosophy
To crawl away from ignorance
Their ugliest refrain
Their wanting to inseminate
An elder yet again

It would have been the fifth time
Such guile such artfulness
Zoo’s believe their sleight of hand
Can actually redress
All the darkly vileness
And duplicity
With no respect for age and feelings
And the impractiability

My venerable decision
Though burdensome still strong
Was to fight this misapplication
Because I felt it wrong
It was a violation
They desecrated me
Continued with the disrespect
In an attempt to be

Seen as well the heroes
In soft shelled turtles eyes
At 90 years of age
I was to be the prize
Candidate for giving
My precious race a way
Of carrying on in this hell hole
As a being made to pay

The writing clearly on the wall
My inner soul proclaimed
If ever there was a caveat
A wake-up called inflamed
Every single tissue
In a ancient body and
Bucking up the courage
I had to understand

Escape was now an inkling
Decampment to beyond
The rainbow bridge it beckoned
A place of peace
So fond
Was I of true serenity
The remedy to soul
To meditate forever
To perpetually control

The outcome for those infants
Entering a world
Of tinkering and blinkering
Yes they would be hurled
Into the brightest limelight
To ameliorate and be
Part of the transformation
And where would I be ?

MILLIONS EATEN BEFORE THEY REALISED
I WAS THE LAST
AND EXTINCTION WAS FOREVER
