Captain Laramie Lion

An Ode to Captain Laramie Lion

Captain Laramie the Lion
Never felt at peace
On the plains of Africa
As much as the seas

The odd one out
He favoured the fish
Over the buffalo
As his favourite dish

His journey began
The day he was caught
By illegal poachers
From Somewhere up north

Locked in a cage
And put upon a ship
Laramie picked the lock
And gave them the slip

He ate every man
Upon that boat
And became the captain
And wore the captain's coat

When he reached a port
He assemble a crew
A motley bunch
Drunk from too much brew

From that day forward
Laramie road the waves with ease
No longer king of the jungle
He was now king of the seas

The End

-See you next time
