Montague Horatio Mostyn Turtle Pigott: The Lion (Poem)

The Lion

(Being an essay written by a pupil
in Dame Europa’s School)

The Lion is a kind of Ass,
His silliness is simply crass ;
He’s such a tame, long-suffering beast
You cannot rile him in the least,
For, though he’s very, very strong,
He never will resent a wrong ;
So, though he’s very, very big.
The other beasts don’t care a fig,
But pinch his tail and tweak his ear.
For he won’t mind — He’s such a dear !
They give him most tremendous snubs.
And kill whole litters of his cubs ;
He’ll sometimes give one little roar,

Montague Horatio Mostyn Turtle Pigott
(1865–1927)
