Biodiversity challenge – Gelada

High society

Ethiopia,
High plateau.
Gelato cold,
Gelada utopia.
Supermonkey,
In his flowing cape,
Crimson badge ablaze.
Surveys the landscape,
Window shopping,
As the carpet cropping
Females safely graze,
Beholden to the golden saviour.
Juveniles avert their gaze,
On best behaviour.
Singles out his latest flame
Amid the troop.
He’s chosen her,
She’ll stoop to concur,
Grin and bear it.
If the cape fits,
Wear it.
