A Buffalo Sighting


I saw a Buffalo one day
An animal that is so immense
I was walkin’ along the road
And suddenly I grew extremely tense

I thought I’d keep on walkin’
Perhaps he wouldn’t even see
If I was on the other side of the road
Maybe he wouldn’t notice me

I slowly crossed the road
But the closer he became
I thought of many escapes
But they all were pretty lame

Then he stopped completely still
I froze right where I stood
He slowly turned his massive head
And then I understood

Here came another Buffalo
Who obviously was a lady
Walking kind of anxiously
And by her side was a baby

He started then toward them
And much to my surprise
He greeted them so lovingly
Right before my eyes!

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
