Lion One

misnamed hollow lion

wearing his megalo mane

a pointy-head frown

toothsome

grin

says the important thing

is to believe in a cause

it allows him to kill

the causeless the useless

the malformed will

rule

son of a lion

grandheir to a monster

husband to silence

father of

death

flee while we let you

run as we fight you

stay

where we see you

we will watch

while you

break

 

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
