The Lion Keeper

The Lion keeper was feeling sick,
so he stayed home to recover.
A replacement was needed
to feed all the cats but
that made the keepers all shudder.
No one came forward,
not one volunteer.
All too busy, they cowered in fear.
A new boy stepped up and offered to do it.
He strode up to the den, shouted
“Eat up!” and “Chew it!”
The zoo had at last found a brave boy.
so he was promoted to Lion Master,
while the ill keeper cried tears of joy.

p.s. This poem didn’t quite make it into my Weirdo Zoo collection, but I really like how lame the original Lion Keeper is, so I had to share. I’m hopefully sending my collection out on submission today. Hooray!
