Y..... Zebra - Poem by Aufie Zophy

Zebra goes to drink
Crocodile jumps
Zebra escapes

Zebra tells son
Not to drink
At that lake

Son goes anyhow
Nothing happens
Son zebra returns

Son thinks
father zebra
does not make sense

Son goes again and again
Son convinced father is wrong
Until one day….

    Kids never listen to their parents do they, and this is the consequence - lessons learnt the hard way. Very well penned. (Report) Reply
