The zebra takes enormous pride in his striped and glossy hide:

For unique as a fingerprint is the pattern on his skin!

And each of them likes to gloat over his short mane and fancy coat-

Each says “Its exclusively mine– this symmetrical design.”

He thinks it a pity and shame that all men look exactly the same!

He really cannot tell one from the other:

Except for their clothes, they could all be brothers.

He is amazed that they wage wars and are vain

Over the colour of their skins — so pathetically plain!
