What was that about a pretty butterfly?
The one on the twig watching the world go by?
"Nature is wonderful" she said, with a sigh
"Tis a pity there are some humans near by"
"They do tend to spoil things, I won't lie"

A spotted cat went out on a prowl
Looking for a baboon, impala or a fowl
Of those he found none
Leopard was a sad one
Set his nose to the sky and gave a growl

Hearing the growl made the baboons shiver
In the wild fig tree overlooking the Sabie river
They shivered in fright and shook in fear :shock:
And the baboon mother shed a tear
She knew the Leopard was a taker not a giver :shock:



Soon the baboons were running hither and nither

Soon the baboons were running hither and nither
All discombobulated with nerves all a-quiver
the leopard meanwhile was sniggering away
in his mouth he had the baboon prey
And everyone else was left in a tither.


Madam Butterfly was flying around looking....

Madam Butterfly was flying around looking....
While Mr Butterfly was in the kitchen cooking...
A meal fit for a queen.
with silverware rubbed into a sheen,
Which was filled with flies he had caught hooking :roll:

Now Larry the Lounge Lizard went out to play
With Lizzie, his sweetheart, it was his lucky day!
They ordered ice creams and jelly babies
And takled about what might have been and all the maybe's
While Larry plotted about how, with Lizzie, he might have his way

Lizzie lizard draped herself alluringly over a rock
After donning her most revealing frock
Showing a lot of mottled green skin
In her right hand was a tonic and gin
She knew what would get the male's knees all a-knock

To Lenny she tempted, "Come chameleon me over here."
"If you come here" she smiled "I'll give you a beer"
"Only a beer?", and Lennie felt let-down
He was really hoping for her to melt down :lol:
And say, "I really need you, dear."

It seems temptresses are all hot air?
Who, with emotions, definitely don't play fair
It's all part of the game of life
For those who don't want to become "wife"
Or who less emotions and more flesh bare
