My Fearsome Five

I don't have one favourite animal
my favourites are the big 5
having been to Africa twice
seen them all real and live

The lion is so majestic
earning it's rightful place of king
the largest and biggest is the elephant
loving the water is their thing

Unpredictable is the buffalo
a lover of good old grass
A rhino loves a diet of vegetables
living for 40 years on mass

Finally we come to the loner
the leopard's never last
with a coat of beauty
and high speed so fast

So there you have my favs
a fearsome five they are
wouldn't want to meet them all at once
without having a fast car
