Carol Krieger and Geoffrey Neate: giraffe

Ode to Johann!

“We came here just two weeks ago

You taught us lots of what you know

We never thought we’d smell the poo

Of hyaena, lion, and gnu

You told us giraffe hunt impala with ease

Of hippo who climb and nest in trees!

Your stories made us laugh, it’s true

Which were just tales? We never knew

You and Nat will always stay

A special memory along our way

We’ll think of you and this place

And how we think you’re cool and Ace!”
