Lions – for day 7 of napowrimo 2015

7 Apr
Would lions sleep out in the wild if they knew

All the things that the scaredy-cats do?
That naturalists photograph them in the nude
That jackals are plotting to steal their food
That the ice caps are melting more every hour
That tigers are working on nuclear power
That they might have a tumour under their skin
That in the election the bad guys might win
That aliens are coming to take them away 
That mole-men will rise up and conquer some day
I think lions should really give thanks
For their complete and utter ignorance
Not followed the prompt – to write about money – on the grounds of philosophical objection.
