Elections In The Jungle
Elections In The Jungle2 mins 222 2 mins 222
Started the jungle with a startling buzz
The environment getting warm.
The small creatures were on an alert
With the birds starting to swarm.
The Lion and Tigers fought each other
Threatening and cursing along!
Citing safety for the animal commons
Singing the development song!
The deer, drinking by the riverside
Was greeted by the King!
And was reassured of his safety,
To fear from not a thing!
Shocked as the deer was,
Lately praying for his life
Got up on his lax legs,
Ran home to his wife!
"Darling! We're in safe hands!"
Exclaimed the innocent being!
"The King asked me to fear no one
And kissed me this evening!"
Mrs. Deer, a reasonable lady.
Spoke in a dubious tone,
"Club Leo assigned us a bodyguard
Also offered our child the throne!"
The Jumbo Club, as wise they were
Called an urgent meeting.
Informed all the fellow animals
Demanded maximum sitting!
Though in doubt, the animals turned up
To the meeting, they were called.
Mr. President Elephant took to addressing
The mass of the animal world!
"The jungle has seen some movement lately
Some fishy moves around!"
Just then, a couple of eyes were turned
Towards a hissing sound!
"Attention fellow mates!" cried the Elephant
"We do fear that this is -
Something our commons don't see often..."
...Another disturbing hiss!
Shrugged the distraction, he continued,
"Er... The predators turning around
to protect their preys is uncanny..."
...A resounding hissing sound.
Mister and Missus Deer now thought
How foolish they could be
To overlook the King, play nice
That everyone gets to see...
...Before elections. With mouthful smile
The one who kissed you now.
Would tear you up with an evil grin
Once they take oath and vow!
Frustrated by now, Mr. President said
"Okay, my friend, have your say."
The snake moved up the stage swiftly
Hissing and slithering on his way!
"With all due ressspect, Mr. Presssident
It's the election ssseason at sstake!
And Electionsss, we know, is all about
Choosing the lesser poisonous sssnake..."
