Rhino tipping... a lovely little idea
born from biology class, an
"educational" nature film.
Three deranged minds, planning
and hyping a tiny escapade down
to the local zoo.
Waiting in the high grass, stalking the
elusive animal as it enters
it's food induced coma.
Creeping up and pushing with all their
might; the mammal falls on it's side,
legs flaying and throat bellowing.
All three collapse, giggling and snorting
up a storn, never realizing the quick
recovery of a now enraged beast.
Chords of laughter quickly become
squeals of panic as the creature
thunders after, horn lowered.
A trio of monkeys scramble up a
tree, sparing no haste or grace
to reach the distant tops.
A curious zookeeper eventually comes
to see what has so infuriated
his precious baby.
His face becomes red when the truth
is learned, he quietly leads the
rhino out... and lets in the lions.
