Lions

Kings of the jungle with manes spread wide
Rest as their queens hunt for the pride
Watch keenly as the hunt progresses
Brushing all their duties aside
And when the queens have finished a kill
The kings walk over to have their fill
And as they age the feeble kings
Are cared for by their loving queens
Who prop them up from every side
Not letting them fall behind the pride
