A struggle ensued at the zoo

when King Lion met Jack Kangaroo.

Wildlife 9

Wildlife 9
An amazingly ugly gnu,
Once stopped on the plains for a poo,
A lion went past
And was almost aghast
So he ran off whilst yelling "Ker....phew"!

Hotter Than Heck

Written in the late 1970's
Updated on June 12, 2012

In the summer, a zebra exclaimed,
"That sweaty lion can keep his mane!
     It's a pain 'round his neck
     When he's hotter than heck.
My white stripes will reflect the sun's rays!"

Zoo Mania

I Took my son on a trip to the zoo
There was so much for us to see and do
    One roar from the lion
    My son started crying
The trip was over I was scared to

There was a lion tamer named Roner
Who acted at times with dishonor.
He abused a lion one night
Which led to a horrible sight.
Hundreds saw Roner become a goner.

David and Goliath

Goliath, a boastful huge giant,

And David, a shepherd and pliant,

So he took a stone,

And crushed his head bone,

Then Israel roared like a lion.

Limerick : Once a Lion of a Man in ruin

Once a Lion of a Man in ruin
Tried to salvage his pawns and queer Queen
Far too late t’was end-game
Even his Knight was lame
So he reset rules and horsed his Queen !

Lennie the Lion

This princely lion called Lennie
In the zoo pub he had one too many
He awoke to exposure
Being in the wrong enclosure
Cuddling a princess lioness called Jennie

The Gazelle That Got Away

There once was a hunter called Ray,
Who went big game shooting one day.
As he stalked a gazelle,
A lion caught his smell,
And the predator became prey.

Chosen to be the lamb for all 
The Almighty lion of the tribe of

Liberating the Lion

A PETA two went to the zoo

Some cages they’d undo

A lion they freed

And with much speed

He promptly ran them through

Sea Lion and Sea Horse

Sea lion and sea horse were friends of course.
Living in the Pacific of the Norse.
Heard a rumor
Both had a tumor.
Not from an honest reliable source.

A salty sea-lion called Nicky,
Had flippers all snotty and sticky,
Her friend Helen-Rose,
Said "Please blow your nose!"
"And then you won't be quite so picky!"

For Darren White

Lion or Chimpanzee

What if a lion I were to be
Out in field so handsome to see
Or could be leopard who is spotted;
Could tell was him hugely dotted;
Swinging through tree was chimpanzee.

August is keeping an eye on
A randy Leo the Lion
Out of the sky
Virgo dropped by
With a comet from Orion

A Hungry Lion

There was a lion who never felt full
So one day he went and ate an entire bull
He felt so good he just kept on roaring
A hunter heard him and bullets were pouring
Full of bull now, he did not know what befell him.

Quin-to Poem.

The Lion Kings

Mufasa & Scar join forces
To kill evil in its courses

Angst to the hyenas
King and bro hit arenas

It is like riding all horses!

Mountain Goat and Mountain Lion

Mountain goat and mountain lion
Some jokes that had people cry’n
They were dumb and lame
Who else could we blame?
They fell on deaf ears most of them dy’n.

The Lion of Lions

One who is such a great leader
A true king who, is a feeder

No trend to follow
Just pride to swallow

And a good dad as a breeder
