Writing Works Wonders three word Prompt: hypocrisy, hilarity, Himalayas.
By Marlene Mesot
Would a striped hyena in the Himalayas,
Be a hilarious sight?
Could you spot a snow leopard, players
Amid the landscape of white?
You’ll find yak, elephant,
Black and brown bears too.
Nature has its own temperament,
Of their habitats making do.
There are macabre monkeys.
You may see rhinos with one horn,
Giant pandas and some foxes roaming free.
But you never will see a unicorn.
In naming large, strong creatures
There is only reverence for beauty.
This mountainous environment features,
Harshness according to duty.
In citing magnificent species
There is no hypocrisy.
