In the heat of the African Savanna
An ostrich met an crowned crane.
Mocking the tiny legs
And the weakly built body
The ostrich started an argument.
The crane rapidly despised
The flightless heavy creature,
Dweller of the grounds

As the shirps and calls went high
A hungry leopard sneaked in
And stroke the loud pair
With a giant leap
The leopard was left there
With only the sound
Of flapping wings
And running steps.
