Mr And Mrs - Poem by Denis Martindale
The lion and his lioness
Were standing face-to-face,
As if the two should there address
Each reason to embrace...
For from such friendship offspring came
With legacies galore
And life could never be the same,
Yet they knew that for sure...
Responsibilities, you see,
Were there for years ahead,
Because such things were meant to be
And each cub must be fed...
Both young and old must co-exist,
There was no other way
And blessed are those that still persist,
Surviving night and day...
The lion and the lioness,
United in one cause,
Together more, apart much less,
According to God's laws...
Thus life continues age-to-age
Beneath the sun and sky,
With lions pausing at each stage,
Determined still to try...
