Bush Baby.


dogs in russia – panthers in

india - ostriches in north africa

– these are just a few wild

creatures helping abandoned

children to survive out in the

wilds of foreign lands


the list goes on but one has

taken my attention more than

most - a ugandan boy who saw

his mother murdered by the

dad and ran like hell


years later he was found out

in the bush with vervet

monkeys keeping sentinel

- by now the hairy boy was

crouching just like them

and joined in the alarm


he imagined those strange

creatures claiming to be men

had come to harm his furry friends

so helped them stand their

ground until the humans had

their say and whisked him off

Where do you come up with these!? The content and intensity of your latest writes, well the ones I have read (which I have responded to) at least, are all stuff that poetry should be about.
