A loquacious lion named Pete
Would sit antelope down at his feet
And talk on and on
About things he had done
And forget that we wanted to eat.
With tedious tales Pete would treat ’em,
Yet they hoped he would never complete ’em.
They returned ‘ohs’ and ‘ahs’
To his fables because,
They’d rather he bored ’em than eat ’em.
