Bell the Lion

the antelopes gathered round
like giant mice, to decide
what to do about the cat.

of course their cat was no Morris
but the king of the beasts himself
and they fretted over this for a bit

the gazelles had once put a bell
around his furry mane so they could hear
him coming going, everything but still

The antellopes ignored the failures of the gazelles
or thought they could do one better
so they sought to re-bell lion
