The Lion

If you're attacked by a Lion
Find fresh underpants to try on
Lay on the ground quite still
Pretend you are very ill
Keep like that day after day
Perhaps the lion will go away

Hahahaha..really! ! That is a very nice suggestion. Funny and entertaining. Enjoyed.
Purrhaps the lion won't! My lion poems are based on the wildlife artist Stephen Gayford's painting titles... You can search poemhunter for Stephen Gayford to find hundreds of these wildlife poems.
Spike Milligan's special way of tickling our funny bones.
A good advice poem of what to do if attacked by lines? ....well written
