Liver Bit Dangerously – a Really Awful Laugh!

Laughing hyena


When hyenas near to a river

Do a ‘Stand and de-liver’, then,

To tear your guts and eat your liver,

They’d be acting as highwaymen?


After that, if thirst overcame them –

Salty livers for this one would thank –

On their way, one can hardly blame them

For laughing all the way to the bank!

    I can’t say that I like hyenas at all, they’re such strange creatures

    Hi! Hi! Hi, Ena!
    Ha! Ha! Ha!
    Who, who, who’ve you eaten?
    Bah, bah, baaah…

    Yes, I know, it should be ‘Whom have you eaten?’, but I take my authority from the film ‘Ghostbusters’ for the grammar.

    One of the good things about the UK is we don’t have hyenas. They are remarkable if rather unpleasant beasts with the hardest bite of any animal if I am not mistaken. No doubt there are even greater dangers in South Africa than hyenas.


  5. misswhiplash says:

    Not much can be said about hyenas that laugh
    except not to meet one that would bite me in half.
    second thoughts…..that way I, d lose weight and be a bit lighter
    but I would not be happy and certainly not brighter


  6. suzicate says:

    Hyenas look scary enough but your words make me never EVER want to come across one!


  7. I hope I never see a hyena. Nasty creatures.

    I think they would be highwaymen of a sort 🙂
