Lion is such a pussy cat,
He likes to read and idle chat.
Try to goad him he won’t even frown –
He’ll take any insults lion down.
Tickle his tum and stroke his mane,
Whisper sweet nothings again and again,
But keep away from the end which has jaws
And steer clear of those finely honed claws.
Be on your guard if he’s salivating –
It is the next meal he’s anticipating!
