Poem for today: THE LION – from The Carnival of the Animals


Here he comes, the mane-man,
swaggering, swinging low,
bring him a chair, no, a throne of his own,
he’s the boss of the jungle,
head honcho, macho, the king of the ring,
doesn’t need to prove a thing,
he’s a natural born leader,
first-in-line eater,
deep sleeper,
female keeper,
sunbather, soothsayer,
never gets ruffled,
barely gets in a tussle,
lets the ladies use their muscle,
he’s got gravity like the center of the universe,
this cool cat is the feline felon, the witness, the jury and the judge,
order in the court! order in the court!
the lion is coming,
listen to him roar.
