A Striped Tale…..or is that a Tail ?

What’s Black and white and Red all over ? a sunburnt Zebra! (sic)

When ever I think about an animal with Stripes, I always think about two particular animals….the tiger and the zebra

The tiger is Orange and Black (or is that black and orange ?) whilst the Zebra is Black and White (or is that white and black?). Both hide in the Undergrowth for protection using this camouflage

Now while I’ve only ever seen these two animals at the Zoo, there is a stripey animal who is quite happy to be living around you and I. I am referring to your tabby variety of pussy cat

Just remember to treat it right – or its ancestral character will come right out!

Tame

Cousin to the king of the beasts

anybody would think

that it would be madness to take it on

Collectively though – the wildness

ails away, when the beast needs feeding

the prince of the jungle becomes felis domestica

Coming out of the forest and scouting the garden

a happy little kitty – toys with a catnip mouse

the only thing (except dinner) he wants to seek out

Camping in his little den

and happy to be his owners pet

this cousin of kings – content as can be

Hiding away in bushes and hedgerows

little red berries await to be found

playing peek-a-boo under the greens

nothing much like their wimbledon cousins

their juicyness comes from being free in the wind

pleasant if you pick them at the perfect time

tasty enough without sugar and cream

sweetness coming direct from the sun

that peeps through their hiding place

jungle-green

Much more a forest

with lots more trees

a place where mother nature

can be very pleased

 

A backdrop of green

for animals to stay

and their families to thrive

and their young ones to play

 

with colourful characters

living up in their tree

living off produce

of the flora and bee

 

Playing in mud

and washing in falls

the little cubs having fun

and having a ball!
