THE ZANY ZEBRA Are the zebra stripes black on white Or white on black? The question is indeed a classic, But there is no more disputing the fact. It’s white stripes on black as proved by genetics! The zebra is in the genus Equus, Yet a closer relative of the donkey! So, in the grand scheme of Genesis Who came first? Neither one, As they all have their own characteristics. The donkey and horse can be disciplined, But the aggressive zebra is not meant to be tied. These creatures were created for freedom; to run wild! And only from a distance, to be admired. At their confident best are zebras within a dazzle*, Strutting their stripes through the open savannah. They not only look good, but are delicious too, After all they are the lion's favourite food! *A group of zebras.
