The Death of Humanity

Pregnant and exhausted
She wandered
Desperately searching for food,
The humans, she trusted
And entered
Their village in a hopeful mood.

They gave her food to eat
A sweet fruit
That she devoured so hungrily,
Humans can never cheat
They aren’t brutes
The tusker presumed that blindly.

But then a burning pain
Seared through her,
“Humans tricked me without pity”
“O’ God! They’re so insane!”
Shedding tears
She died, so did humanity.
