The Leopard Who Lost His Spot

LeopardIf you count a leopard’s spots
You’ll find that he has lots and lots.
Only other leopards know
Just how many spots they grow.
Lenny was a leopard small
Who one day heard his mother call:
“Lenny is ill! What has he got?
He’s lost his biggest, blackest spot.”
Poor Lenny hunted high and low,
Just where it was he didn’t know.
The other leopards looked around
But still the spot could not be found.
Now in the jungle lived a man,
And down to him young Lenny ran.
He told him of his missing spot-
The man said, “I know what I’iv got!”
He went into his grassy den
And came out with a little pen.
Soon Lenny ran back home again,
His visit had not been in vain.
Upon his back, what do you think?
There shone a spot in blackest ink!
The leopards thanked the man who’d plotted
To make their Lenny fully spotted!
