Tinky &  Sir Lance ~ A ~ Lot in Collaboration


*******************


 


 "Mane Course"


********


The lions of the


Serengetti


Are as adept in catching their quarry off guard as a bouncing


Betti


Then quickly Race after their prey like Mario


Andretti


And with claws sharpened turn its hide into


Confetti


Then slurp down the innards like meat balls and


spaghetti


No doubt their skills could be set to music like a


libretti


And have it composed by the great


Donizetti


And sung by none other than


Pavarotti


But all of this hard work makes them rather


Sweatti


And would find it much easier sitting down to a plate of


      Cappelletti!

So very true of the lions in the Serengeti. But your poem gives us space to laugh at their very serious work. I enjoyed your creative touch. R
