Moresby’s worsening traffic jams & the need for planning
Dropping from the heavens: Resupplying the patrol

Like animals

JEFFREY MANE FEBI

An entry in the Crocodile Prize
Kina Award for Poetry

Just like animals
Run free with me today
Forever on a foray
Notice our horns locking
They are our heritage
Stomp our paws

Just like an animal
Fly free with me today
Forever on a foray
Hear our chirps synchronise
They are our prestige
Flap harder our wings

Just like animals
Swim free with me today
Forever on a foray
Feel our tails touching
They are our vestige
Flex hurriedly our bodies

Are we not animals?
Talking mammals
Bipedalism our invention
Materialism our affliction
