Fossil

Flitting, flickering, flashing
black, white, and a note of red
passes beneath trees
that were already old at the end
of the Civil War.
The lovely departed species
announces its fearless
refusal to cease to be.
And as we stand in awe of life's
determination, it hammers
its note of hope against the
dead dry bark that sleeves a meal.
Can an old being be resurrected?
Can a people be saved?
And at what cost?



Question #1: Based on the article, the poem, and what you have learned elsewhere, who do you think loses when a plant or animal species becomes extinct? Is that price always too high, or do you think there are times when the needs of humans outweigh those of other species? Support your answer with reasons and examples.

    I really don't know honest

    If you don't know what you think, I certainly don't either.

    OK, how about this.

    There is always a way around exterminating a race of animals, even if it means we do nothing. Human being can easily survive without any further expansion, we have set up our lives like that, any further species wiped out by us will be done out of greed and selfishness. Human being do not own the earth, it is the right of life to live on it, and we have no right to destroy it.
