Choking Heart

The lion paws around
his cage of a life.

The old kingdom has ruined;
being stolen of a king
	He and his rock 
lay in the sun

across from a highway.

They tell him it's a new frontier.
A frontier with no plains 
no rush, no pride.

Spectators shuffle in,
to catch his roar.

He and his rock
lay motionless 

as the ticket buyers complain.

    I love this frank.. kinda the same way I feel every time I go to a zoo. Try to enjoy but guilt overshadows the fun ever time. Very touching
