The final cut
Gone with Gondwanaland.
A continent divides;
From North and South
The axe-beaked islanders.

Green, gold and scarlet
Quintessence of parrot.

Wrybills for your affection,
With a natural bent for turning heads.
Last of the red-hot plovers,
Declining in their shingle beds.
Desperate for greater protection,
Increasingly feeling the strain.
Give them a chance to recover;
Don’t make them wade in vain.
