The Lion Cub

Lion CubThe leopard covered himself with straw,
The tiger gave a yawn.
And in the peace of the afternoon,
The lion cub was born.
He opened his big blue eyes so wide,
That lion cub so small,
And only his parents really knew
That he was there at all.

He tried to sit up and look around-
He even tried to talk,
So just for a treat, his mummy said:
“I’ll take him for a walk.”
She carried him through the jungle
Till she met an elephant,
But he was cross at being trickled,
By a very naughty ant!

Just then the baby cub mewed and gave
A squeaky, baby sneeze.
But this was enough to blow the ant
Away into the trees.
The elephant was so pleased he said:
“That lion cub will be
The Kin of the Jungle one day,
For helping a chop like me!”
