Good Afternoon

by Sir David Attenborough

About 70 or 80 men jumped onto the track, brandishing knives and spears.
To say I was alarmed is, to put it mildly…
I walked towards this screaming horde of men,
I stuck out my hand,
and I heard myself say 'good afternoon.'



Notes:  Today is the birthday of famed naturalist and television personality Sir David Attenborough who was born today in 1926 in a suburb of London, England.
