Granger, the Ranger

by Thal1959

Bad Rhyming Contest Winner 
Granger, the ranger, fought a hippopotamus,
whose disposition was imposserous!
And that so angry, charging bull elephant?
was quickly made merely, irrelephant!

But his native guide had asked, "Would thoust,
care to engage in an animal joust?"
So, Granger said, "Thoust come and see-eth,
that no charging animal can make me pee-eth!"

The challenging critter was a fat rhinocerous,
and Granger thought the thing was so preposterous;
with bags 'neath its eyes, and a sad, thorny jowl,
he pummeled till it shrieked, like a great horny owl!

Granger, the ranger, was the king of the beasts,
He necked with giraffes, for awhile, at leasts,
'till he tried to be the romantic, infatuator,
of a lovelorn - but hungry - male alligator!

Writing Prompt
An example of bad rhyming

Contest Winner

When I considered entering the "Bad Rhyme" contest, I thought of the Cowardly Lion's bad rhymes from the Wizard of Oz. I applied it to a great white hunter, whom I named Granger after Stewart Granger from "King Solomon's Mines."
