National Poetry Day Message Poem by Harvey Roberts

Apology to a Lion

.

Sorry lion,

your incredible head

is at the end of my bed.

.

Sorry lion,

all your little cubs

were shot dead by mugs.

.

Sorry lion,

your magnificent coat

is carpet in a boat.

.

Sorry lion,

your wonderful wife

was killed by a knife.

.

Sorry lion,

your powerful spirit

you cannot visit.

.

Sorry lion,

your carnivorous teeth

were taken by a chief.

.

sorry lion,

for doing this to you.

.

From the world.

.
