Donal Mahoney- A Poem

Cecil the Lion, R.I.P.

We know the story about
Cecil the Lion in Zimbabwe 
killed by an American dentist 

who paid a guide to find him 
a lion he could kill
with a bow and arrow.

The guide lured Cecil, a lion, 
off a wildlife preserve, using
the stench of a dead animal 

roped to the top of his vehicle. 
The dentist’s arrow wounded 
Cecil but it took hours to locate 

the lion and kill him with a rifle.
No word yet as to whether Cecil’s
heart, brains and liver were shipped 

the way a Planned Parenthood staffer 
said her New York agency ships 
smaller hearts, brains and livers.
