 Anthony's Poetry

The African Sun


The African sun sets over the thorny  bushes as the lion roars.
A cheetah cub ambushes a young gazelle while a wild eagle circles
high in the jungle sky.
The monkeys  scurry along the green canopy  trying to hid from the eagle's eye.
The eagle swoops down out of the amber colored sky and grasps  the monkey by the neck.
The  eagle flies  to its nest high on the mountain side, and feeds the monkey to its young.
The giant of the jungle raises its trunk and bellows its disapproval of the human intruders
as it sways back in and forth down the jungle path.
Zebras run nervously across  the African plain  as a  pride of lions looks on in vain.
 Poachers  chase animals' to the neck of the forest, where they kill them without remorse.
Now the sun is no more, now the moon is born.

The Africa sun is now the African moon.
And under the throne bush sleeps the lion.
The yapping of the hyena can be heard for miles around.
Fruit bats fly all around.
Some animals sleep while other eat.
