Humorous Lion dreams of being the King of the Jungle while his birdie friends sit on his "crown".
This poem was inspired by the image:
HE WHO WOULD BE KING:
He sits there always dreaming of the pride he's been denied -//
a would be king and master of the jungle far and wide.//
He should have been a ruler with a lioness by his side,//
to share his hard won glory with his elevated bride.//
His disappointment lingers and is something he can't hide;//
it remains forever deep inside - his ever wounded pride.//
He has fine-feathered friends who come and sit upon his crown,//
and they try their best to comfort him, knowing fate has let him down.//
And while the tears roll down the cheeks of this ever saddened clown, the dream within has never died,//
and he sits there starry-eyed.
