Untamed and vicious,
yet his mane its so delicious.
Fierce and wild,
his manner its not mild.
Imposing and defying,
an impromptu encounter is terrifying.
Strong and fast,
your flesh in its face will not last.
Relentless and merciless,
running from him do not stress.
Caring and sweet he is not,
your blood it's snout will blot.
"Caution, ferocious animal" the sign reads,
and for asistance the multitude pleads.
If you dismiss you will lose your ion,
for in the enclosure resides a lion.
