Hyenas and Lions

Hyenas and Lions short poem

Photo by mcoughlin

When I found you
you were in a position of weakness
you were walking with your tail between your legs
you were broken

Yea, I noticed
Kind of surprised

You see
I figured it best
we not talk about
your brokenness

True lions never pounce
on the helpless

I could have eaten
you alive

I could have made you my
seeking
approval
slave

I could have

But you see
vicious lions
also have hearts
deeper than the
deepest sea

So,
I didn’t eat you
and then
you ate
me.

Northumberland to Newcastle And Cumbria’s lofty hills. Durham down through Cleveland To Yorkshire’s misty dales. Across to dear old Lancashire It’s Mancs and Scousers too. Cheshire, Staffs and Shropshire The Severn lands of dew Across into the Midlands Leicester, Notts,
