The ivory factory #poaching @ConservationOrg

Ivory chase

Horns quickly bring wealth
Where putrid pellets of sand
Lie with drought and death.

Ivory staged

Desert death row meal
Now watched through a visor
Going for the kill.

Ivory made

Smoke and unseen flash
Rustle leaves and burst through skin:
Beast and money crash

Ivory cased

Litter carcasses,
Vultures humming eulogies
While horns live with man
