Dare you hide


Your lion eyes?

They look at me, and

I’m not surprised

To see my soul bared, to

See my mind, as

Only humans hide

Behind lion eyes.


I can see

Your puppy eyes.

They look at me

Without disguise.

They share your heart

They share your mind, with

Veiled surprise, as

Only humans

Fake puppy eyes.


Lions can’t hide

Their lion eyes

For they are pure, and

They are wise

They are old, and

They’ve spent time

Living behind their

Lion eyes.
