The Dandy Lions

The Dandy Lions
Are a curious race,
With their timeless style
And finest lace.

Cravats and cufflinks,
A combed back mane,
Tailored waistcoat
And walking cane.

Retractable claws,
Polished as glass.
You couldn't deny
Undeniable class.

I asked them once
How they maintain
Such a clean and
Well kempt mane.

These creatures live
Out in the wild,
Sleep in the dust,
Yet remain styled.

How could they keep
Their suit so bright,
The velvet soft
And shirt so white?

And to their secret
They let me in...

Why...

'Tis simply a napkin
Tucked under the chin.
