The Animal Farm

Tipsy Elephants

Image By – African Elephants Tipsy on Maroela Fruit.

The animal farm is fun,

although seemingly serious,

Out there under the African Sun.

Along the rivers edge a large baboon

Mounts a monkey.

In the midst of his ecstatic high stroke

A crocodile gripped his tail

Dragging him into her fetid hole under the river.

Out there under the Afrcan sun.

Satisfied with her morning’s catch

On the bank of the river she lay,

in somnambulance, her jaws agape,

Out there under the African sun

A pride of lions observed her state

They decided to put her on their plate.

Quick as lightning they attacked.

She was rendered helpless as her legs they hacked.

Out there, under the African sun.

A herd of buffalo to water’s edge refrained

For necessary drink they claimed

A spot, next to the legless croc.

The Lions attacked, but the bull tossed

A lion into the air, breaking its back

the rest of the pride made a hasty track.

Out there under the African sun.

But its not all a matter of eating one another, you know.

The Maroela tree, in her season,

Kindly deposits her fruit in order to ferment.

Now, the monkeys, bushpigs, Mongoose,

And even elphants come for some fun

Out there under the African sun.

Oh yes, the Maroela fruit works her spell.

Soon the animals rolling, falling in a drunken frenzy.

They stare at one another, all glazy-eyed.

Would you like to join them –

For some fun under the African sun?
