“You know you are truly alive when you’re living among lions.”
- Karen Blixen ,Out Of Africa .
His crown, a sun-bronzed head
His robe , a golden coat
His sword , a sure swift paw
His throne a windswept plain
THE UMKIMZULU RIDGEBACK
His duty to protect us
His dream ,but to be free
What other KING
On earth could rule
With such SIMPLICITY
