Mr Savage?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I bite hard, but I ain’t no alligator
I snap easily, but I’m no croc
I’m a slippery customer, but I’m no piranha
I’m prickly when challenged, but I’m no porcupine
Sometimes I tell porkies, but they’re hard to swallow
I’m often lambasted, but never sheepish
I have a shaggy mane, am sometimes lionised
I’m tigerish in the tackle, but I’m no feral cat
I squeeze the life, outta the opposition –
But I ain’t no cuddly bear
So it’s really unfair
This sobriquet :
‘The Animal’
