Chapter 2: The Heart Has No Questions

The zebra took to the new life by meeting all the animals of the barnyard. He came across a chicken and asked, “I am a zebra, who are you?”

“I am a chicken,” said the chicken.

“What do you do?” asked the zebra.

“I scratch around and lay eggs.”

The zebra walked up to a cow. “I am a zebra. Who are you?”

“I am a cow,” said the cow.

“What do you do?” asked the zebra.

“I graze in the field and give milk.”

The zebra met a bull next. “I am a zebra,” he said. “Who are you?”

“I am a bull.”

“And what do you do?” asked the zebra.

“What do I do!” snorted the bull. “Why, you silly looking ass - take off your pajamas and I will show you!”

Enough for today.
