"Look what I found!" a girl proudly exclaims,
while far from the ground her little treasure hangs.
A slender long tail pinched- no chance at escape
the poor lizard flails ,
its ' silent mouth agape.
Put it down sweetheart , here , give it to Me
I'll return it to nature
I'll make sure that it's free
You needn't pick up all the things which you find ,
sometimes collecting can be rather unkind .
All you have to take with you are the memories you see !
We'll all be much happier if you let nature be.
