ZEBRA CROSSING: HELP ME WALK ACROSS


                                                                              
         Alternating Dark and
        Light, I travel the highs
          And lows of life
                                                              
                                                                 
                                                                 
                                                                 



  
On a Toucan crossing 
I walk along
With my feelings



                                                         

Oh! Tiger crossing 
So yellow and black
  Give me strength to walk across


Inspired by the theme at

    1. Thanx Alice!
      Yes Tiger crossing more common in Britain and hongkong, you could say its the regional variation of the zebra crossing! Both pedestrians and cyclists can cross, and the cyclists need not dismount!
