Poems from Zoologic by Jim Cornish

The Secretary has been delving through her archives and so, with your permission
posts this poem, one of a series, in hopes that someone will provide a suitable
illustration. (Perhaps this one is an object lesson for certain Union Members who
have had a tendency to get their employers to walk!) Yours, from the Office

The lion is a lazy beast,
he loafs around all day
and sends his missus out to hunt
then comes and eats the prey.
He's not much use around the den,
he never lifts a paw
and when it comes to training cubs,
all he can do is roar.
The lioness tries with might and mane
to get him off his rump
and act a bit like king of beasts
and not some useless lump.
She says that he should show the pride
that lions are renowned for,
instead of lyin' round all day
that not what he was crowned for.

Now our Jim the Poet
Well known by many
Should take to writing
Of those who walk this earth of ours
well known as "Blokes"
Who would I fear
When children appear
Take to lighting up a smoke
And disappear ,for that fear
Of tending children big and small is often heard call
"Blimey this is my day off"
A woman knows,
that 7 days
spent with small ones in tow
Is not a picnic where we want to go....
So Lion King you lose your crown
To those Australian blokes on whom we frown.......
