needing not to starve

henri rousseau lion-1910

in Africa…
acacia slake the heat
into shadow pools
across savanna where
night stitches tighten dusk

and lion prides stalk and
dash and thrash blood lust
to feed fight breed their
needing not to starve

no guilt…simple
nothing trinity

imagine now…drone
predators…imagine
metallic lions…tigers
stalking…preying
from the sky

programmed tightly
with philosophy… and
needing not to feel
