Po’ouli

Extinction came knocking

For the po’ouli the black crested honeycreeper bird

It is not the first and won’t be the last

Victims of man and earth changing ways

Makes natures balance start slipping away

But as sure as the po’ouli has become extinct

Man should take notice because for us it’s closer than we think

But for the po’ouli it’s over and no more will they be seen

Further loss of variety and saddens my heart to think

Of many other species who are teetering in the brink

Or have already gone the same way which is tragic to me

Extinction is the new reality.
