The Kudu

The Kudu

The kudu set out for the river,
dressed up all kudu style,
and as she did pass, the lion from the grass,
purred, “Stop and stay for a while.”

“Oh, that won’t do.”, said the wise kudu.
“I dare not stay for a while.
I know about you from my friend the gnu,
whose bones now lie in a pile,
and I’d hate to be late, to a previous date,
for a drink with the crocodile.”
