Some notes on fur coats


Do leopards wear spots to avoid pot-shots

By poacher or hunter-with-a-gun?

But why wear a coat of fur-

(No wonder these cats don’t purr!)

In the heat of a tropical sun?


When stripes became passé,no longer chic

This is what the  tiger said

“I prefer any day to be dowdy and quick,

Rather than fashionable and dead!”

So thanks for the hype, but I’ll go with the stripe

Unafraid of flying lead!


“This enormous mane is such a pain”

Said the lion, as he snoozed in the sun,

It doesn’t let me leap, or play or run,

And the hunt I shirk– its strenuous work!

Let my lionesses have all the fun!
