Coming Of A Messenger

Far, far south in Mother Africa
Where the Springbok prances and sprints
Where the Leopard sprawls upon a tree branch
To camouflage its presence in he polka-dotted shade
Where the Hippopotamus thumps the ground with muzzle
Where the tottering Tortoise makes tortuous, soundless
footsteps
To mark a countdown on eternity.
Where the Zebra kicks the air with vigor
