Cricket Safari - Poem by Vijay Sai
The flags are flying high and handsome,
The sky is blue and brilliant,
The trumpet is blowing hard and hustling,
The drumbeat is sounding grand and great,
The Indian tiger is ready to pounce and prowl,
The African tusker is marching tall and majestic,
The Lankan lion is roaring and raring to go,
The Pakistani eagle is sharp and sizzling,
The Australian kangaroo is hopping fast and furious,
The Zimbabwean Flamingo is flocking feathers and taking flight,
The Kiwi bird is looking bright and bold,
The British bull is locking horns and looking to leap,
The West Indian seagull is keen to clean up all the fishes,
As the rest among the group
competes with the best to challenge the race,
The race to lift the cup,
Come on! Come and join the celebration,
The tempo is upbeat,
The atmosphere is carnival,
It’s the World Cup!
The cup that matters,
The cup of the millennium.
*Cricket Safari paints a colourful picture of the pomp and gaiety associated with the arrival of a cricket world cup. The competing teams are compared according to the nature of the various inhabitants living in the jungle. The race between them lit up the festive spirit and throws up a challenge as to whom lifts the coveted trophy.
