Great Lionel - Poem by Colin Ian Jeffery
Wanting to be a lion tamer
‘The great Lionel' star of the circus
Daredevil of the sawdust ring
No more the red-nosed clown.
Ringmaster introduced him
And into the ring he boldly stepped
Wearing red satin tights and vest
Polished black leather boots.
Cracking whip with pistol on hip
Haughty and proud was he
Entering the cage with a contemptuous smile
Facing three lions and grumpy old lioness.
Three lions jumped onto barrels
But the lioness she refused
Wanting dinner and she ate the Great Lionel
Leaving only his black leather boots.
