A Zebra Visit

f you’ve ever had a visit with a Zebra
It’s an animal that stands on its own
For there is nothing at all quite like it
As it nestles inside of its home

The markings are each one unique
For there are never two of the same
Although usually wild in other countries
They can sometimes be nice and quite tame

I was privileged to visit this huge barn
Where Clydesdales have their stalls
But imagine a Zebra in the midst
Standing so beautiful and so tall

Horses and Zebra’s are not exactly alike
And sizes can be very different too
The markings are so fascinating
Some seem to sit rather askew

So if you’re lucky and meet one
An animal that is truly exquisite
You will never ever forget it
To be able to have a Zebra visit!

    few times have I seen zebras and I only see them at the zoo because I think there are no zebras 'originally' here in the Philippines
