The sun shone down on the African plain.
The trees and the grass were short of fresh rain.
Giraffes munched slowly from tall thorn bushes.
Hippos in the pool were hid by rushes.
The animals came to the pool to drink
They weren’t aware of the cheetah I think.
The elephants were safe for they were strong.
The impalas could graze but not for long.
The cheetah through the long grass came slinking
Its muscles tense and its eyes not blinking.
It kept on crawling ‘til it came quite near
To the wildebeest and impala deer.
The cheetah charged it was ready...
Before there were men, or monkeys or mice.
Before the first cow, sheep or goat.
When none of the Earth was covered in ice.
When few creatures had a fur coat.
The land was then ruled by the teeth and claws
Of terrible lizards called dinosaurs.
The ichthyosaur was king of the sea.
Pteranadon flew in the sky.
