I am Cecil

A poem written by an anonymous 13 year old boy.

I am Cecil.
Naturally I am powerful.
Yet the situation is such that I am no longer alive.  Alive to hunt, alive to live, alive to be african.

I am not Cecil. But I am Africa. An African for you to kill obviously.
I am every Rhino and every Elephant that you tear apart.
I am the ivory ripped off their faces for you to consume.  I am Rhino and Elephant. I am Cecil, I am Africa.

I am sorry that we can't defend the defenseless against people with weapons used to attack.
I am sorry that we can't bring Cecil back.

You've killed Cecil.
You're killing Africa.
I am not Cecil.
I am Africa.
I need help.
