Lion One

misnamed hollow lion

wearing his megalo mane

a pointy-head frown



says the important thing

is to believe in a cause

it allows him to kill

the causeless the useless

the malformed will


son of a lion

grandheir to a monster

husband to silence

father of


flee while we let you

run as we fight you


where we see you

we will watch

while you



Lion Two

this one’s a doctator

an optical lesion


unanaesthetic surgeon

throat-ripping demon


his stub fingers ache

his nails have broken


he cannot locate

his old silver spoon
