THE BROWN HYENA

By Josie Whitehead

Brown Hyena (The)

I'm lean and I'm mean and I forage alone. 
I'm shaggy, I'm scraggy and to others, well known. 
     I’m canny, I'm cunning and have both wile and wit. 
     They say I have strong jaws.  It’s true, I'll admit. 
 
I'm rough and I'm tough and I prowl the wide plain. 
I’m both scavenger and nomad, with long unkempt mane. 
     I'm tawny, I'm brawny and in the rays of this moon, 
     With good fortune my ally, I may feed very soon.
