Wannabe Fool

A poem

Wannabe Fool

I heard that you woke up one day

And put a lion's mask on your face.

Knowing that you make predators drool,

You were glad to know you had them fooled.

You were delighted to anoint our skins,

And paint your loved ones as decadence.

But feast your eyes, you glorified tool,

You will soon find out that they have got you fooled.

You were playing with their cubs one day,

And they did not see paws, only hooves in their place.

As the pride watched, they soon started to drool...

It is there that you lie, silly wannabe fool.
