She sits atop the greenest hill
the likeness of their image
peaceful aura replaces doubt
unto the end she softly shouts
Gracefully moves throughout the day
a strong, poised, meaningful way
rushing in with primate knowledge
shared with every school and college
Is this ‘The Jane' we used to see?
Swinging with Tarzan from tree to tree?
Africa's animals, once kingdoms profuse
slip slowly through a time worn noose.
