Ronnie the lion was stressed
he thought he may go insane,
it all started weeks ago
when he started losing his mane.

He tried doing a comb over
he dreaded the names he’d be called,
but he couldn’t hide it much longer
for soon he’d be totally bald.

Day after day more desperate
he’d even considered wearing a hat,
Because he felt very close to becoming
king of the jungle to a big pussy cat.

He was sure the cheetahs were staring
and the rhino’s had noticed his loss,
he growled and roared at them sternly
because he had to keep being the boss.

One day the cubs were acting strangely
and the lioness’s were causing a stir,
Ronnie was very surprised to see
they were all cutting off their fur.

For once Ronnie was totally speechless
tears were making his eyes sting,
the lions said “with or without your mane,
you will always be our king”.
