This is an article about Danijel and Eva Mrsic, two people that I met as a result of my work with Global Hand (www.globalhand.org).  If you would like to read about the rest of my trip to Croatia, it is in the April 2004 "news" section.  Danijel and Eva Article (PDF Format)

Here is a poem that I wrote one fall evening in my flat in Budapest. This is the rough and final draft:

To a Wildebeest

O Wildebeest!
I see you romping on the African plains
Your hoofbeats sound squishy after it rains
If I killed you it would make a feast
O Wildebeest.

O Wildebeest!
You look so majestic roaming in packs
Sandwiches from your meat make tasty snacks
And if I cook you the pan will be greased
O Wildebeest.

O Wildebeest!
Your death on my conscience would be too rough
Plus, I hear that your meat is quite tough stuff
So today your numbers will not be decreased
O Wildebeest.

But Wildebeest!
I cannot leave you; You'll come home with me
A pet for my kids! An attraction to see!
You'll be put in a pen with sheep that are fleeced
My Wildebeest.
