I dedicate my poem to Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, The Lubavitcher Rebbee

Josette Marie Louise Lager
California, USA

God chooses the foolish things
of life to confound the wise.
I speak of Snowflake the Barcelona
beauty a lovely albino beast
but poachers had their own ideas
on how to cook their new found feast.

Eventually greed settled in
their minds about this little
one of a kind and you received
reprieve at just the right time.

Let's sell him to the highest bidder
so here you are now in the Barcelona zoo
a sight for all to see with eyes as blue
as the bonnie blue skies the raging seas.

Snowflake's whole family was slaughtered in front of him when he was a baby.
They remember things like that, the trauma.
