This is an amazing poem. You picked up where Les Murray left off so perfectly. I am in love with your first two stanzas and how beautiful you depicted the animals. This is short and to the point. It isn’t unnecessarily long and you made it very clear the message you were trying to portray. I especially love the last sentence, “This curiosity and greed of consumption are what drives it after all.”, because it is so haunting yet so true. Great job overall!
