Black stripes on white
Or white stripes on black
The perennial question
often asked. You want a
visual answer or a scientifically
proven answer was the retort!
Gathered in a group you could
not even make out. Was it the head
or the rump looking your way
It was perfect harmony, an ogre
of black and white with blinking
eyes at certain points and moving
tails swishing slowly at other points.
Those were the only tell-tale signs.
They must have laughed at us.
You stupid humans! They must have
said that many times. Must you try to
unravel the discord?
Do not scatter us or you’ll be confused
Just be happy with the crossings across
the road. Our heritage to humanity!
