Haiku Chain - Irony

Tough Grits

Recommended Posts


He is the lion.

Gold-brown eyes survey his land.

Arrogance abounds.

The lazy lion.

Forgetting who makes the kill.

Not he; for he sleeps.

The lioness stalks.

She carries all the burden;

Killing and birthing.

The lion does smirk.

On a throne he highly sits;

Proud, lazy, and blind.

Silent lioness.

She sees what the lion can't...

Her throne is taller.
