Please find below an entry in Purrsday Poetry by Martin H. Samuel:
Returned to Kenya rented a car
‘gari’ in Swahili
in downtown Nairobi for a ten-day
(sleep in the back) do-it-myself safari
turned into Tsavo ‘simba’ (lions)
I had to see
pulled off the road parked under a tree
had a drink killed the light
cracked the windows for the night
early next morning had to go in the dew
climbed out barefoot
mist all around obscuring the view
stifling a yawn ambled into the dawn
when, sleepily starting to pee,
had the feeling
something was watching me
looked around then down at the ground
the area was circled
lion footprints I saw
privates in hand backed up to the door
they could see me I couldn’t see them
I’ll never make that mistake again.
