Leaping Leena

They called her Leaping Leena, She was famous through the land, It started when she jumped a cattle dog, Then a woolly lamb. Next she jumped a wheelbarrow, Then she jumped herself a car, Her fame was spreading everywhere, Through shearing shed and bar. Next she jumped a wagon Without a second thought, Then she jumped a brahma bull, After the wild beast was caught. But alas her career came to an end When her eyesight started to go, Se jumped right over a cliff Thinking there was water down below.

G'day John... I just hope that those inconsiderate people who dump their old mattresses threw them over the cliff John... and if so, we might hear more of leaping Leena. Regards - Lindsay

Yes Lindsay, The poem doesn't say if she survived or not, although one would presume that she didn't. Yes, where's a mattress dumper when you need one. ......Thanks for stopping by Lindsay and the funny comments.....kind regards-----John
