Hyena prayer

O God
An entrance into house is yours
An exit from house is mine
And the hyena entered into house
Took a goat and ate the goat in bush

One day, hyena forgot his prayer
Went to look for the prey
Approaching the cattle camp
The Mock Bird saw him
He made an alarm
‘’Hyena, Hyena is entering the camp’’
‘’Am I entering the camp¬? ’’ said Hyena
‘’Where to? ’’
‘’Going to drink’’
‘’Is there water in camp? ’’

The Hyena continued going to camp
The Mock Bird made an alarm again
‘’Hyena, Hyena is entering the camp’’
‘’Please Mock Bird, my brother, keep quiet,
I will get for fat meat’’, the Hyena begged
‘’Do I have teeth to chew? I have no teeth’’
Asked the Mock Bird
‘’I will chew it for you’’, said the Hyena
‘’Your smelly mouth’’, jeered the Mock Bird
The Mock Bird continued to make an alarm
People in the camp heard alarm
And chased away the Hyena
