friday fun, courtesy of 1903

A Raging, Roaring Lion, of a Lamb-devouring kind, 
Reformed and led a sweet, submissive life.
For with face all steeped in smiles
He propelled a Lamb for miles,
And he wed a woolly Spinster for a wife.

You need to see the excellent illustration for that - and you can, on page 11 of Joseph Greene Francis's  A book of cheerful cats and other animated animals (New York: The Century Co., 1903).
Here's the link to it at Internet Archive, where you may page through it there or download it for your superlatively goofy pleasure.  Plenty of innocent silliness and critters caught in non-sequiturs!
