I Am The Lion?

a lion couple

The Lion's roar reverberates
Across the vast Savannah.
It doesn't make the beast a King,
Which is another matter.

It isn't what the Lion says
That makes the others tremble.
It's who he eats for supper;
Not words that would dissemble.

a sandy lion

William's Whimsical Words:

If thou wouldst a Lion be,
Comport thyself accordingly.
