HUNGRY LION

Why couldn’t you roar? Silently you tiptoed What attracted you in that slim tender bull? To mercilessly made her widow In an orphanage yoke tied us Why hiding the motive so deep Were the five strokes of torture not enough? But to snatch him away from us What wrong did he do? What didn’t he do right to punish him so severe You have eroded our courage with fear
