People and wild animals.
Yes, people and wild animals can live in peace,
If humans respect boundaries,
Respect the homes of animals,
Refuse to encroach on game parks,
Say no to deforestation,
And stop poaching.

Yes, wild animals are valuable like domestic animals,
They are magnets for tourism,
Tourists from all over the world,
Troop to Kenya to see our wildlife,
And the more tourists visit our national parks,
The richer our country becomes.

Yes, people and wild animals can live in peace,
Because all lives matter,
Mother leopard's smile,
Is just as beautiful,
As Mama Lengewa's smile.

Now my friend,
Why would you want,
To kill wild animals,
And destroy game parks?
