Extinction Like A Song Never Heard Again

She's the last breath taken by the last of her kind
Extinction like a song never heard again.
She's the hour between night and dawn,
when the earth stands still to mourn her loss---
the decimation of whale, wolf, rhino
of elephant and eagle
of virgin forests, highly prized
slashed and burned...
their body parts sold to the highest bidder.
