Ze Hiena

Hienas don't taik cair of higeen;
we’r fond of karrion; we drink warm jin
wizaut tonik and we neva uze
ze mornin afta peels. 
                                  “Beest's on ze looz!” -
you shaut in panik, raizin flags of truce
over your comfy gravez but we refewz
to uphold dead men rites. Oh, wat a feest
of flesh! Ze dead will neva rest in peast.

Oh dear, I've just read your explanatory message below and have to admit that I thoroughly enjoyed reading it aloud in a German accent! It was very amusing!

Ach so! Dann sollte ich lieber eine Dalek-Stimme annehmen!

Actually, I strongly doubted whether I should do it in a here. For someone for whom English is not a native language, it was a pretty risky experiment) Anyway, I wanted my hyena to look like an alien. I have no idea whether I succeeded or not.

I like hyenas. They display the best of human nature ...

Thanks, Kai. P.S.: To my point of vew, a man is a crossroad of worlds. Minerals, plants, animals, man himself, gods... Depending on personal level of development, people show certain qualities. I agree, some of them don't differ from hyenas. At the same time, I saw people who looked like gods. A man is a complex creature)

Don't quite know what's more amazing -- that you wrote this or that I could actually read it. Thanks for the laughs, my friend!
