Aureate Life – Our Obligation

Early evening drenched in an aureate light

Daylight fading: taking flight

Last sky aflame with the setting sun

Darkness creeping and the day is done

Elephants cast in a silvery glow

Moonlit shadows dancing: seductive and slow

The hoarse cough of a leopard slices through the night

Eerie silence: a breeze takes fright

This sun kissed land with its God given treasures

A land that is raped and pillaged for man’s pleasures

Elephants a target in this harsh and timeless land

Blood red footprints marring the sand

Elephants herds: their leaders no more

Spiritual journeys to a distant shore

Fold upon fold of wisdom and splendour

Lost in translation: tragic surrender

Stars twinkle down, tears spill from their eyes

Man’s destruction: unquenchable desires

How can you desire? I hold my breath

Something that is so symbolic of suffering and death

For those magnificent elephants left on the land

Our obligation to you all: your destiny we hold in our hands

We are the cause of these darkest days in the elephant’s history

Let us unite: win: celebrate an elephant victory
