Tell it true and edible

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.

Male lion will supervise

Her choice of his next meal;

In piles of dung and urine spray,rhino

Elephant will knock down trees

For tasty strip beneath the bark;

Dwarf Mongoose will dwell within

Shattered branches cast aside,

Hippos move in pools of eyes;
