STRENGTH OF HARDENED CRIMINALS

Many many times
Lion ruled the jungle on crimes
Killing smaller animals like no other
And always walking with huge shoulders with no bother
No call for justice made it shudder

II
Then cat, out of hunger
…hunted down a mouse like a low ranger
Prompting others to brand cat a stranger
And force it to taste its vice
To save the poor poor mice
So the voices of all animals did rise

III
Lion acted on it
And called for cat’s body to be split
He never for once thought of his hits
…on antelopes, goats, sheep, cows, giraffes and others
And worse, the animals still saw him as a brother
…and not a bother

IV
And so it was that lion still ruled the jungle
And made sure the animals felt his many a strangle
And always saw him from his strength’s angle
Till the jungle crumbled with the extinction of many who handled
…its affairs

Just a simple Ghanaian trying to find the best in our society. I may be fun, I may be interesting, I may be funny, I may even be foolish or intelligent, but it is all based on the mood in which you find yourself. I believe our minds make us who we are. Know that, pain, no matter its 'unbearability', is transient. Unburden or delight yourself for a while in my writings please. And all corrections, advice and opinions are welcome. Know that you are the king, queen or royal on this blog. :)
