If historic eyes had seen this future
Where a kitten mounts a lion’s seat
They sure would have cemented their feet
And stopped the clock
Before seeing their shadows fall
How can a kitten paw fit into a lion’s?
How can a kitten rule over fierce tigers?
And all other characters in the golden jungle?
If only the kitten will mute the horrifying weak meows
Carried through the strong crown of a microphone
Onto the ear plates of the world
In ridicule of the golden jungle
If only its kitten plays
Would take place on an eyeless and earless stage!
If only it would allow baby lions to train its zero brain
If only, if only
Now far eyes like mine look in sympathy
At the golden stool which taunted many into fools
Then into working bulls
To climb to their prestigious peak
Knowing the disaster being written in its deserving history
