Liner Notes: 

Skirmish prompt: extinct

Lyrics: 

C
spix’s macaw
cryptic treehunter
Po’ouli are the three
three species of birds
that had no progeny
all vanished from our earth
what is the cost?
what was their worth?
ohh.. ohhh
what was their worth?

(bird sounds)

V
in two thousand eighteen
three birds became extinct
no longer flying free
they were gone in a blink
the birds disappeared
and there was no fanfare
what have we done?
what will we do?
as more species die off
do you care?
some don’t I fear...

C
spix’s macaw
cryptic treehunter
Po’ouli are the three
three species of birds
that had no progeny
all vanished from our earth
what is the cost?
what was their worth?
ohh.. ohhh
what was their worth?

(bird sounds)

V2
the climate keep changing
tree canopies are gone
human carbon footprints
expand far beyond
what Mother Earth can hold
as what she has erodes
can we stop it now?
can we save her?
before she dies off
do you know?
most don’t I suppose..

C
spix’s macaw
cryptic treehunter
Po’ouli are the three
three species of birds
that had no progeny
all vanished from our earth
what is the cost?
what was their worth?
ohh.. ohhh
what was their worth?

(bird sounds stop abruptly)

Another sad story that we need to understand and realise there is no coming back from. Well told and in a skirmish as well.

Well done with the theme. Thanks for reminding us of those species.

I'm very sad about the birds. I love the birds and will miss them. We need them to make birdsong and sing your lyrics. Good work.
