Let’s get the week off to an unusual start with a poem from Justice Greg Hobbs. Hobbs, a CFWE Board member, shares this poem after a recent trip to Botswana and South Africa.
Inspired to see some of these animals here in Colorado? There’s always the zoo… learn about water at the zoo here. Do you enjoy Justice Hobbs’ poetry? If you missed it, check out Colorado Mother of Rivers– a poem and rap.
Tell It True And Edible, Greg Hobbs 9/14/2013

Cheetah’s fast, but can’t climb trees,
Leopard hangs his kill aloft
Hyenas hear the warthog’s squeal
Chase the leopard off;
Lioness will crouch and still,
Impala cross in fleet review
Male lion will supervise
Her choice of his next meal;
Rhino marks his boundaries
Elephant will knock down trees
For tasty strip beneath the bark;
Dwarf Mongoose will dwell within
Shattered branches cast aside,
Wild Dogs rejoice in ganging up
Hippos move in pools of eyes;
Cape Buffalo wears a judge’s wig
Vervet Monkey face of regal blue
Water Buck a target for a rear
Jackal takes advantage.
