Lion Cut

The Lion Cut

Lions As Pets

The encroachment of wild animals in civilized havens;
baby lions, sucking milk bottles, tigers adorable hand held...
zoos and amusement parks see the deer come over here!

Elephants on lines trunks intertwined, popcorn on the floor,
polar bears and pandas, zebras fifty feet high, munching green...
is this not what Nature really means, so it seems.

Humankind is the boss, we ruin and watch, suck a frozen bar...
artificial flavours, not tropical fruit, throw the wood holder
on the cement floor, isnít this tasty there are many more!

I have a cat, homebody, thirteen years going strong...
we are both aging meandering right along,
which path is better, who is right and who is wrong?
