NAIROBI NATIONAL PARK

Deep in the heart (near Lang’ata) of our capital,
Harbouring and offering sanctuary to animals many in total,
Small in size but of value to the nation,
In East Africa having no imitation,
Green, lush and serene- an ‘island’ cut off,
From the neighbouring smogy and noisy ‘turf’,
That is our grand, region encompassing, dear metropolis,
Which from pre-colonial days was and still is,
East Africa’s administrative, communication and even more,

[Hata Bildir]
