Treasure Island

Katherine Day


the animals of the jungle


One dark rainy night
The animals were sleeping
In the dark jungle

Thunder woke them up
Loud like charging elephants
Rumbling towards them

Louder and louder
Not thunder but rumbling trucks
The animals jumped

They attacked the trucks
The lions with their long sharp claws
Ripped the tyres to shreds

Lemurs jumping high
High in the tree tops green
Throwing coconuts

Panthers chasing tails
Rushing here, there, everywhere
Catching tails on legs


The jungle was saved
The animals saved their home
All quiet again
