Hyena and five Bulls


Lived five bulls in forest
One red bull,
One white bull
One brown bull,
One black bull
One spotted black white bull

Hyena attacked them one night
Bulls chased away hyena
Hyena attacked them another night
They chased away
In noon, hyena came to conversed with bulls
One bull asked why he attacked at night
‘’because of white bull’’ said hyena
‘’what if not here’’
‘’I will not attack you’’
Hyena left

In evening four bulls told
White bull`to leave becase pf
‘’you’’ hyena attacked ‘’us’’
White left and stayed alone
Hyena attacked him
And ate him

Days passed,
Hyena attacked at night
Bulls chased him away
In noon came hyena to converse
One bull asked him why he attacked them
‘’because of red bull’’
‘’what if not here’’
‘’I will not attack you’’
Hyena left

In evening, three bulls told
Red bull to leave because
‘’You ‘’ hyena attacked ‘’us’’
Red bull left and stayed alone
Hyena attacked him
And ate him

Days passed
Hyena attacked three bulls
They chased hyena away
In noon hyena came to converse
One bull asked why he attacked at night
‘’Because of spotted black white bull, of his colours I see you’’
‘’What if not here’’
‘’I will not attack you’’
Hyena left

In evening,
two bulls told spotted bull to leave
Bcause of ‘’him’’ hyena attacked ‘’them’’
Spotted bull left and stayed alone
Hyena attacked him
Attacked him
Ate him

Days passed
Hyena attacked two bulls
They chased him away
In noon hyena came to converse
Black bull why he attacked at night
‘’because of brown bull’’
‘’What if not here’’
‘’I will not attack you
Hyena left

In evening black bull told
Brown bull to leave him
Because of ‘’ him’’ hyena
Hyena attack
Brown bull left
Stayed alone
Hyena attacked him
Ate him

At second night
Hyena attacked black bull
Ate him
Writing in Hyenaica hieroglyphic
He drew by claws on sand ‘’one wise hyena
Defeated five strong long sharp horn bull’’’

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
