17 The Lion - Poem by Athul KrishnaA

Look at that mane
All so yellow,
Look at those eyes
Looking so cruel
Look at those musles
Ready to pounce upon
And tear apart with
Those sharp nails
look at those teeth
All so bloody
Dripping blood all over!
Why did god make you king?
Oh you scary lion!

    That a 10 year old boy wrote this, should not diminish
    a metaphorical meaning to its content. God, in his
    wisdom, speaks to us in many ways. Even, through
    the verse of children speaking the words of the King
    of Kings.
