Dinner Is Served

a lion couple

At sundown, if females hunted not,
Would males rush out to make a kill?
How great a hunger is their lot,
Before the pride can eat its fill?

How many sundowns come and go,
'Til males o'er come their foolish pride?
Couldst bring down scarce prey in snow?
Or should females take the cubs to hide?

You knew me well 'fore mated we became.
Am I not true, and often just the same?
I can take all the family out to dinner,
Cook the meal; lest we end much thinner.

male lion

William's Whimsical Words:

And have you never heard me roar?
Please, Dear, go out to the store.
