A short poem to celebrate Impala in Zimbabwe, contributed by Chatgpt!

In Zimbabwe's plains, where the grasses sway, A creature dances, nimble, light and free, A sight to see, as it leaps and play, A beauty rare, for all the world to see.

The impala runs, with grace and speed, Its slender form, a picture of delight, A creature born to dance, and thus to feed, On grass and leaves, beneath the sun's bright light.

Its hooves are sure, upon the ground they tread, Its eyes are sharp, alert to every sound, And when it leaps, it soars above its head, A creature of the wild, unbound and unconfined.

So let us honor these beasts so fair, And marvel at their grace, beyond compare.
