Roar of the cats

 In distant jungles in the dead of night
Lions and hyenas are apt to  fight
Often fighting  over  common food source
Outnumbered lions suffer nasty bites

They  will often times  fight from sun to sun
but the battle is never really won
It's a constant war between the two
Death  come to those who aren't top gun

As a lioness sounds a distress call
 Hyenas circle her,  twenty in all
This conflict may result in her demise
Deafening roars rattles trees as leaves fall

Two huge lions  come to settle the score
The battles rages with lots of blood and gore
Hyenas run away to lick their wounds
The jungle echoes as the  victors  roar
