Lion In A Village - Poem by Daya Nandan

There was once a lion both strong and brave,
So bold and iron hearted, the jungle king took many to the grave,
And one day the lion seeked food beyond his kingdom,
The land of man, a new land for his freedom,

the maned king killed many, ate their flesh till the bone,
Devoured many strong men who thought they could fight alone,
People in the village we scared, they lived in fear,
For this lion could resist the slashes and thrusts of their spear,

But then, one day the lion decided to invade a house near by,
Thinking it could have another easy meal, a tasty man ready to die,
The lion was curious to know what meat was inside,
Would it be a delicious fat man or woman? , perhaps kids planning to hide?

What would a lion have to fear with it's neck protected by a mane so thick,
With its powerful claws and jaws that could easily crush a brick,
Little did it know that this house near trees that bore papaya
Was the house of a man, the one called Daya,

The lion got in and spotted the young lad,
Ready to tear his flesh, to give him an ending so sad,
He charged at the man, the jungle king's seemingly future lunch,
Only to be stopped by a single Daya punch,

The lion was in shock, How could a man have such power?
A mortal whose fists could break the walls of a tower,
The lion decided to try again thinking it would win,
So it tried to slash Daya to make its murderous sin,

The claws left deep marks on Daya's hairy skin,
But Daya seemed unaffected, upon his face there was a grin,
Daya brought out his nunchucks and charged towards the jungle king,
Like a warrior drunk with bloodlust in a gladiator ring,

The lion tried to kill him but he skillfully injured the pantera leo's paws,
Now the lion could not properly use it's flesh tearing claws,
And out of nowhere Daya's dog came along with a well bladed long spear,
A German shepherd bred for war, Daya's dog who had no fear,

The German shepherd decided to distract the lion so Daya could run,
But Daya would never run from anything under the sun,
The dog attacked the lion but the lion smashed the poor dog down,
Proving the strength of the jungle king's mighty and legendary crown,

So, Daya took the spear his dog gave him and slowly went between two walls,
Daya was planning a strategy to kill the beastly king for Daya has big balls,
The lion jumped at Daya with its ferocious nature ready for the kill,
And Daya backed deeper between the two walls to unleash his ultimate skill,

The lion was stuck between the walls as its huge body could not fit,
And Daya used an attack that made the big cat shit,
He thrusted his spear and pierced the lion's golden mane so thick,
An attack to the carotid artery that made the lion's end quick,

The Dog had shown it's loyalty and time made all it's wounds heal,
They were both glad that this was the end of this ordeal,
And now people know the tale of the lion looking for a meal so nice an fat,
Needless to say, when it entered Daya's home, curiosity killed the cat,
