The Lion

The mighty lion once roamed
across the untouched plains.
Kings and queens of their domain,
never taking more than they should.
Living together with all under the sun
enjoying a balanced tranquility.

Until the day man came.

Man took what the lions offered
and wanted more and more.
Never satisfied, never pleased,
until they claimed all under the sun.
The balance lay in tattered shreds
across the African plain.
All suffered as man approached
but they hoped for a reprieve.

Until the day man came.

Man was swift in their attack,
but nature had a plan.
Lay and wait, survive another day
until man learned their lesson.
That day never arrived, and
the mighty lion fell silent.

Until the day man came.
