Choices in the Jungle

Set me adrift Turn me right around, That's where I'm going. That's where I'm found. Parakeets. Monkeys. Snakes to eat. Venomous, poisonous As all this retreats. Spines in the river; Sharp, hungry teeth. Pass through the darkness A clearing now nears. Towering waterfall, loftiest trees A Jaguar now glimpsed, into Jungle is seen. Turn me right around As rain clouds appear. The Waterfall. Darkness. Too few sounds. The others now listened, but I Near the Jaguar was found.
