The Messy Mane


Once upon a storytime,

There was a lion, bad and big.

He loved tearing to pieces

Rabbits, deer and pigs.lion.png

 

He had big, bad eyes,

Round and red,

And big, bad teeth,

Almost a hundred.

 

But one thing he hatedroar.png

Was his long mane,

That pricked his eyes,

And gave a lot of pain.

 

It was messy, dirty,

Sticky like clay,

It think his mom,

Didn’t wash it this Sunday.

 

One day he spotted,

A rabbit, white like snow,

He moved closer to him,

carefully and slow.

Growl! He pounced,

Like a toy with spring,

Ready to kill and eat,

That poor little thing.

 

Stop, o mighty king,

You are strong and fearless,

I might be weak,

But I am definitely not useless.

 

Ha Ha Ha! What do you think,

You can do?afraid.png

Or any creature,

As small as you?

 

I can help you,

Tame your mane,

I know it gives you,

A lot of pain.

 

Really, can you do that?

The lion was taken aback.

If you help me,

You get your freedom back.

The rabbit washed

Combed and oiled

The lion’s mane was

No longer spoiled.

 

Then tied his mane

Into a cute tight bun

The lion said,

grooming is actually fun!

Wow! I am free,

Said the happy hare

And the lion was

Free from his dirty, messy hair.

 

Always be ready

To help and care.

Like this weak and small,

But helpful little hare.
