Animal Index 3 Animal Index 2 Funny Poems

His mother called him Brian

    But his dad just called him “runt”.

His siblings quickly learned to roar

      But he could only grunt.


“Now listen dear,” said Mother,

     “And copy what I do,

For if a lion cannot roar,

     They send him to a zoo.”


Poor Brian tried, and tried again

     But roar he just could not.

His father, feeling quite annoyed,

     Said: “You’re a stupid clot.”


“So how will you communicate?”

      Asked Mum Lion in despair,

“For lions speak by roaring

      And grunts are just for bears.”


They took poor Brian to the vet:

    “Let’s see what he can do!”

He said: “The best thing for this lion

     Is to send him to a zoo.”


So off went Brian to London Zoo

    Where no-one said: “Please roar.”

While other lions must hunt for prey

     Brian gently snores.    Zzzzzzzz
