Truncated Sonnet: ''The Good Earth''

The fierce, supple tiger
(an untamed, deadly beast)
is not meant as dinner,
for someone's sportive feast.
The giant, harmless whale
(a great, ocean mammal)
won't survive or prevail
against reaving people.
All Earth's feral creatures,
of land, sky, and the sea,
are here as our teachers
and life's diversity.
Save man's endangered worth,
and restore the good Earth!

A very burning issue! And a gentle sonnet, smooth trimeters!
