King


But what is man, but an insignificant insect in my dominant domain?
A wasteful clan, pernicious and prejudicious roaming the open plain…
Using a destructive plan, a killing machine building their festive feasts,
Invading the Sudan, hunting for their prey calling me, the King of beasts.

Am I not an animal, only killing when I hunger to feed the restless pride?
And a lion lacrimal, for I also shed tears when I lose my bar caged bride…
A fading fractional, our dominance diminishing amidst the wilderness wing,
A feline fallible upon extinction, but for this direful day, I’m still the King.

Your expressive poetic voice roars in this compelling, meaningful and exceptional piece, my soul bro. I love the personification of the ‘King’, and was moved by his righteous indignation and emotion. Best wishes for a win and warmest wishes for you, my dearest bro bro. Love, light and lions.. ~your sane sissy <3
