Mellow Yellow Monday: Round the Bend


Round the bend a puma lurks,
Licks his chops and smiles and smirks,
Knowing that his next warm meals
Will arrive on eighteen wheels.
He imagines crunch of bone,
Hears the hapless wail and moan;
Yet he cares not e’en a whit
That his victims will be bit
And disposed of one by one
Long before the day is done—
Sanguine, tasty banqueting
Fit for beast, but not for king.
Round the bend a puma lurks,
Licks his chops and smiles and smirks.
Gleefully he rubs his gut,
Waiting for, well, you know what.

  1. the poem is fantastic!!
    I love it
    especially the – licks his chops and smiles and smirks
    what a visual

  2. he cares not e’en a whit … what an animal!

  3. I laughed. Thanks!

  4. I’m sure a puma around the bend might make a car or truck have an accident. In Canada we have warning signs for deer and moose and elk. But your poem takes all the warning out of it and makes us laugh.

  5. I have never seen such a sign for this animal! And the great little jaunty poem to complement it is wonderful!

  6. Well done and amusing. A puma has to get his next meal where he
    can, I imagine. Yummy!

  7. It looks from the clouds,
    That the fog is descending.
    Beware, the puma may pounce.
    Do driving carefully,
    Don’t put your arm outside your window
    Like some reckless driver do,
    For the puma is very hungry,
    On this night.
