Mr Giraffe

By Argon Opiyo

Oh, Mr Giraffe, you look down upon the world

You are taller than the bushes

You are taller than the trees

You are taller than the anthills

You are the first to see the sun rise,

And the last to see it set

Oh, Mr Giraffe

Mr Giraffe

What are you eating to make you tall?

Is it the leaves you are eating?

It is the way you are created?

You are taller than all the animals

Oh, Mr Giraffe
