PROTHIEFICS (TANKA)

images

I have thoughts to say;

Lion as chief of the forest

Concatenates to

Loss of smaller animals

In the forest of Hanah

II

I’ve more thoughts to say;

Leopards and hyenas know it

But are afraid to

Stir the nest of fearful bees

Others think their stomachs precious

III

I still have more thoughts

Coterminously, many

Are in cahoots with

The lion for some crumby share

And you’ll think it so unfair

IV

I dare you to step

In their shoes and know your fate

You will dance to tunes

Like fetish in possession

Now, tongues wag like mine, pretense?

V

We’ll all sit and wait

While the lion eats fat, too bad

We won’t live to see

The extinction of our peers

And the chewing of grass by lions

    1. Yes, Prothiefics means “Protectors who are thieves”. You know how it is that people sit and watch people in power squander all the belongings of the state because they are afraid or they don’t care. Eventually, they cannot stay to watch what will become of those people because they will be dead before the thieves die. That’s what I meant.
