The Caiman & The Anaconda

Lived a Jaguar on the banks of Amazon; He was the ruler,
Of the place he lived in.
The Caimans said they own the place; biting on
A big Piranha fin.

Anacondas, there were many;
They slithered on the mud.
They said, that they are natives,
Chewing a Capybara as cud.

The Jaguar yawned, when the other predators
were, putting forward their claims,
The Jaguar didn’t snarl or snare,
Or call anybody names.

He said, he was hungry,
Food was all he wanted,
With a roar, he killed the Caiman,
In a moment the meat was sorted.

The Anaconda died of fear,
He gave up on becoming King,
He skinned the dead snake thoroughly,
While a song He did sing.
