Lionel the Lion

There was a Libyan lion,

(Yes, Lionel was his name),
Who was the hopeful scion
Of family of great fame.

He lingered by the lakeside

Lunching on tender lamb,
(And tears of pity cried
Because he hated Spam).

Lionel was a clement lion

With such a heart of gold,
But when it came luncheon
His taste, refined and bold.

Beware of kind-hearted foodies

Who will devour meats
While saying that such goodies
Are vegetarian treats.

  1. Nice poem! and love the picture as well..

  2. I liked this until I got to the 'lamb' part,
    Then I thought 'Hey I eat lamb', but smugly
    consoled myself with the thought that the lamb
    we eat is slaughtered humanely rather than being munched
    alive... so I guess good old Lionel, just like we humans
    have to eat !
