The Rhino and the President
He met a Prince once...
Trusted - dropped his guard
Came out into the open
For the world's press
After all wasn't he protected?

Millions of admirers
And a Prince saw him once
But it took a volley
Of bullets, from poachers
To bring him down.

Like a President once...
In an open top cavalcade
Watched by the world
Bought down by two shots
After all wasn't he protected?

One in death was respected
One was violated - de-horned
Both reported by mass media
An open wound
Unprotected.

One had dined with World Leaders
The other - met a Prince once...
