Antelopes

Antelopes are graceful as the wind through the savanna grass, No one can understand that they don't go slow; they live fast. They sprint majesticly through the fields, Exemplary speed for an exemplary creatue, especially because they don't yield. Luminescent are its eyes in the night; before hyenas take it down, it puts up a good fight. Orange colors make them take flight; after they are caught, they see the life-taking light. Potential speed built up, then broken down, along with a hyena's dreadful sound. Eagerness is not enough, sometimes blood will flow, and they will be found.
