Lion King

Last of the Buffalo

Lion

Lion King

Ancient Assyrians
Mesopotamia
Where conflict
Raged for
Millenia
Now ISIS
Then kings
Killed for sport
Ersatz courage
Fighting
Tawny lions
Hunted from
Chariots
Mighty beasts
Trapped
Slaughtered
Now innocents
Families
In villages
Barrel bombed
Once mighty
Native warrior
Pride of the plains
Last of his race
Who roamed free
Spearing buffalo
Food for his tribe
Until dwindled
Near extinction
Manifest Destiny
White man's burden
With God on his side
Like Islam's
Assassins shouting
Allahu Akbar
What's so great
About all those
Corpses
