Victory Of A Lioness

Updated on July 27, 2012


Your day has finally come

Unlucky lady of Middle Earth

Your face and body are not for keeps

And your suitors are no less than creeps


The words you utter are as bitter as bile

Or at best, breathy and sickly sweet

Not clever as those of the literary elite

Whose approval and admiration you seek


I believe the time is nigh

When the bell rings a deafening sound

Calling you to come meet me for a round

And let me show you why I wear a crown


Feel my wrath across your heart

Feel the fury that I can impart

The laws of the jungle won’t ever lie

If a lioness strikes, she asks not why


Watch how I reduce your limbs to a pulp

As I watch you take your last gulp

The world will be free of your stench at last

Your name forgotten in some distant past

      This reminds me of something I might have written & I Loved the Lioness theme! Are you a fellow Leo? I'm quite enjoying the fluidity & prowess of your writings & looking forward to reading more.

      sorry I couldn't really do an effective roar scrittobene... considering i'm the sign of the fish... but this is an incredibly powerful poem. I agree with Gypsy Rose .

      Awesome however I wouldn't want to be at the end of that lioness's anger. Well done. Whoever you smashed to a pulp you did an effective job.
