Some like to see bunnies, so hoppy,
with small twitching noses and floppy,
cute ears—or a llama,
the cause of such drama;*
but I’d rather see an okapi!
Stumped viewers are always inquiring,
“What’s that creature?” They stare, admiring
this zebra-giraffe,** for
it is neither one nor
the other—and so awe-inspiring.
*a reference to the popular children’s story “Drama Llama”
(about a llama that gossips and stirs up trouble among the
other animals) and the topic of entertaining videos
**another name for the okapi, native to the Congo
