Treasure Island

Ima Ryma


Maku - Lincoln Park Zoo


A black rhino, Maku's the name.
Not really black, more reddish brown.
Endangered species - that's a shame.
But I'm safe in Chicago town.
I've been wooing Kapuki girl.
The humans keep checking her poop,
Hoping that this romantic whirl
Will bring a wee one to the Loop.
I'm used to humans all around.
They are a species I study.
Smart and dumb, both together wound,
But not endangered like I be.

Carry the hope is what I do.
Right here at the Lincoln Park Zoo.

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
