WE LIVE AND THEY LIVE

I’ve often wondered about the use of the word “sport” to describe hunting.   Where is the sport when the animal is unarmed?  Give the animal a sporting chance with an equally armed protector charged with knocking off the hunter.  I doubt many hunters would try that sport.

WE LIVE AND THEY LIVE
(To the tune of “He Loves and She Loves,” by George Gershwin and Ira Gershwin)

Bears live, and mews live
and wild Kangaroos live.
We live, let them live too.

Elephants who live
outside of a zoo live
fearful of what we’ll do.

Lions should roam free.
They’re kings, after all.
Not made a trophy
you’d hang on some wall.

They’re born to,

Live free, and run free
on plains that, are gun-free.
Safe from the hunter’s view.
