A rhyming poem about an Amazon woman who hunts and is the pride of the village.
Where natives dance and wrestle low,
The Amazon jungle, deep and wild –
There lived a tomboy of slender build,
Whose hair and clothing were deftly styled…

This sporty lady with dark brown skin,
And eyes as black as deepest space,
Could wield a spear with deadly force,
And devour meat with a grimy face. 

This chick was one with all the males,
The chiefs and hunters glistened with pride.
Everyone welcomed her toughness, skill,
And wished to battle by her side.

A rugged youth, she fought quite bravely,
But men thought her a bit too rough –
When she played, the guys got bruised,
Shying away when they’d had enough…

The jungle such a vibrant place,
Creatures living in shrouded gloom,
No time to wallow or delve in self-pity,
A relaxing nod can seal one’s doom!
