In London town there are many secrets.
Gardens and courtyards
in hidden places.

In one of these gardens there lived a cat called Tom,
He was a fighter of some renown.

He believed the garden was
his own.
and would watch over his little
kingdom.

Unknown to Tom a rabbit lived there too.
his name was Bun and he would often nibble on a leaf or two


As Bun hopped to his
favourite spot.
He swa Tom lying in
the sun.

This won’t do,, thought Bun
what’s this mangy moggy
doing here.
So he hopped across to tom
and smacked round
the ear.

Tom shot up with a look
deep surprise.
This is the day, hissed Tom
that a rabbit dies.

They fought a mighty
fight.
Each thinking that he
was right.

No quarter asked and none
was given.
In fighting skill they were
fairly even.

It is said that you cannot tell if a cat is male or female.
When Bun caught Tom beneath tail,
he discovered ne was male





So they fought that long
hard day,
neither surrendered or
gave way.

Till, at last when the day
was done,
tom conceded to the mighty bun.

They agreed that they would keep a truce.
That they allow each other
the gardens use.

Tom kept to his place.
and so did Bun.
Now the fight was over
and the battle won.


Bun was victorious, and had won his right
No one could deny
his might.

Good friends. if you’d excuse an awful pun.
when next you go to London town. Beware the
Chelsea Bun.
