Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet,
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.
Essex report roaming lion but was it really just a cat?
Today we bring you our mane story and
with it the silly holiday season goes out with a roar. At the bank holiday weekend
a report of a roaming lion caused mayhem and an extensive pawlice operation was
launched in a field in Essex. Needless to say he was feline peckish so was on
his way to the shopping maul. 30 pawlice officers, marksmen and two helicopters
with heat seeking devices searched for hours to no avail. The search has now
been tailed off and it is believed the chief suspect was none other than a
Maine Coon cat called Teddy Bear. Poor old Teddy all he wanted was to go
for a stroll and have a good long nap in the sun in his local field. Suddenly
there are all these people running away screaming out ‘LION’! Anyone who
mistakes a cat for a lion really needs to go to Specsavers. Thus the wonder
that was the Essex lion passes into myth alongside ‘The Yetti’, ‘Big Foot’, The
Loch Ness Monster and other such legendary creatures.
