African Koan

The cheetah chases the warthog
For 1.5 minutes then quits
Before his brains boil away
The lion waves away a cool skinned zebra
Whose black stripes shimmer in the heat
Then sprawls in the arms of a tree
The hippo sweats cooling blood sweat
And his feces gives life to the life in the river
So that even the crocodile leaves him be
All these animals understand better than any man
What is important in life
And what should be let go
