~ Dream to fly free! ~

Lioness Lioness Queen of your zoo
are you happy through and through?
Please tell me how I can help you
Have you enough here to do?
Lioness Queen of the zoo

I am quite happy here in my home
I have plenty to do and places to roam
And all who come near me have a friendly tone
And never do I feel alone

Lioness Lioness of what do you dream
far away places so wild and so clean
where elephants trumpet and strange birds scream
of a life that was so free and pristine
Lioness of what do you dream?

I dream of meat hung in the tree
of fresh water provided just for me
I can live my life so carefree
it’s all I know this captivity

Lioness Lioness Could you not fly
fast through the jungle the Savannah and sky?
you could remember these if you try
where your life there would be lived on high
Lioness you could fly!

I know not what you tell me; what is this place
where I could hold such regal grace?
You think I remember but there is no trace
Can I find it if I were to pace?

But I have walked this enclosure every day
there’s no jungle here where I could hold sway
and the Savannah you speak of is not my way
but I will watch you and talk to you if I may

Then Lioness sweet Lioness here you shall stay
And we shall all love you and help you to play
For you would go hungry if you were to stray
Back where your ancestors lived in their day
Lioness with you I shall stay

Each specimen enclosed in a sanctum or zoo
Came to be there for their freedom was through
But who now is free? Are we? Me or you?
With all of the deadlines and things we must do

Perhaps she is Regal this Queen we come see
With others doing for her what I do for me
And nothing to harm her she can just be
And rear babies who we can set free
So that they dream they may fly!

Artist's Description

A stunning British artist I have just found LorusMaver created
and again
lioness and again my words flowed!

Is dreaming we can fly just for you and I?

Enjoy! ♥
