Travel Singapore Haiku - Night Safari


singapore night safari
we go looking for lion
in the middle of city

singapore night safari
all of us longing to see
Sang Nila Utama's lion
(the man who saw the legendary
lion that resulted in singapore
named Singapura.)

singapore night safari
all the excited animals
told to keep quiet

singapore night safari
the excited animals
look for animals

singapore night safari
one excited animal forgot
the no flash ruling

The Singapore Night Safari take you through stretches of forest at the Singapore zoo where you can see nocturnal animals roaming about in the natural habitat. there are bearded pigs, sang kancil, hipopotamus, deers, tigers and lions. of course, the animals that could cause the most disturbance here are those with flashes and cameras. they had to be told repeatedly not to use flashes as that could cause the animals to become unruly, and heading for the flash.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti
