31 days: Xavier


X is another challenging letter
But given time I thought I’d better
Go and find the African squirrel
Xavier, whose brother is Cyril.

The xerus live in families large,
but Xavier is the one in charge
leading the band from day to day
for sticking together’s the only way.

Yes, Cyril and Xavier, sociable chaps
I hope you can visit them there, perhaps.
You’re bound to find the heat quite frightful
But the wonderful sights and sounds delightful.
