The Big Five Poem

Updated on April 7, 2011

Buffalo

Elephant

Poem 25: The Big Five

Buffalo was first spotted

Chilling in tall grass

Hanging out with impala

Elephant was second spotted

Found walking the road

Some seen taking a drink

Lion was third spotted

Surprisingly easily seen

Sunbathing on roadside

Rhino was fourth spotted

Running away from us

Back into dense bush

Leopard was last spotted

Sitting on tree branch

Overhanging the road
