The Panda beautiful

All black and white

If we don’t look after them

they well just might

disappear for good

so do everything in our power we should

protect and learn and discover and nuture

one of the most beautiful and majestic parts of our nature

I’m willing to pander

For an Asiatic Panda

That’s willing to pander to me

For all their weirdness

Their black and white beardness

For a Panda, I’ll pander to thee

– Daniel Verberne
