Catastrophe (The beast is off its leash)

I have re-posted the poem ‘OUR NATURE REFLECTED’ in dedication to all of the wildlife and habitats destroyed and currently being destroyed by man made environmental catastrophes. I am no expert in ‘wordology’, (as Terry Pratchett would say), however it does seem more than a coincidence that a word that sounds like ‘trophy’ appears in the word catastrophe. A word that describes, perfectly, mankind’s effects on animals and their habitats, either through greed and/or thoughtlessness.

With specific reference to the current Gulf of Mexico, BP oil disaster;

….the beast was mighty, it was large….the beast seemed merciless in its devastating charge ….
