Animal poems - Lion
... authoritative, powerful, predatory
A lioness stalks her prey.
She leaps forward, and the African antelope runs away.
And then the beat drops. Surpise!
There are lionesses all around, it is the antelope's demise.
Sharp teeth sink into a neck, and soon there is a feeding.
Let's focus however, on this predator's strong-suit and meaning.
A pride is both a matriarchy and patriarchy, the team is most powerful united.
A family of relentless warriors, wild and ignited.
As the cubs roll around and play, the pride watching in a careful manner.
Hyenas beware, of a strong predatory woman who rules the savannah.
As the sun sets over the horizon, and the grassland glows in crimson light.
The lioness is just waking up, and preparing for the roars of the night.
