This short poem, almost as short as "Haiku", reveals Sandburg's knowledge
of the subject, his depth of feeling, and (being written in 1922) is
obviously a "lament", for the great loss of the American Bison.
Actually, this poem is not far from Rachel Carson's "Silent Spring", is
it??
An un-biased, outside observer (say, an extra-terrestrial) would be
well-founded in concluding that the human race is a "cancer" upon this
planet...
