EXT. ZOO — AFRICAN PLAINS — DAY

A Thomson’s GAZELLE alone on the savanna. ZEE the fly buzzes nearby.

GAZELLE
The grass… This taste! One cannot
believe. Please—I beg—what make
such rich grass? Such flavor?

ZEE
Is fertilizer.

GAZELLE
“Fertilize.” What is this word?

ZEE
Make grow. In soil. Plenty use.

GAZELLE
Fertilizer… I like this word! It make
grass greener, it be Jamil’s friend.
What else do with this “fertilizer”?

ZEE
Nothing. Is all. Zee collect,
redistribute—is bore. No need
‘cept for grow.

JAMIL (GAZELLE)
Ah, to have such purpose so pure…
What make such a thing?

ZEE
Is fece. From park store.

JAMIL
You mean—this “fece”—it
something one must buy?

ZEE
Store. Where keep food and produce.
Fece produce.

JAMIL
Ah, Jamil think he see. One make
fece fruit, then fertilize grass.
Grass grow green like fruit.

ZEE
Enough close.
