Lions and …. Monkeys “Oh My” #uganda #atozchallenge


“Here kitty kitty”

I whisper from my seat

looking very un-edible

I don’t rise to my feet

I can hear her breathe

she waits still for her prey

her whiskers flick

not staying to play

*

Monkeys watch from the road

they will jump on your car

if you aren’t careful

they’ll be nearer than far

 

We enjoyed being a few feet away from the lioness. I was glad we were in a very large truck.

We were told not to provoke the monkeys (small and large). From our boat, we watched  a group of tourists (where we had been earlier in the day) being circled by baboons.

 

I continue to enjoy the A to Z challenge tho I got behind because of travel.
