Lion Afternoon by Jacek Yerka


Lion Afternoon
“I’m a lion. I’m not tough, but I am strong. I’m definitely not a wallflower.” – Cressida Bonas

whima whack, whima whack, whima whack…
the lion sits under the table
calmly watching a frog frolicking
in the fountain
after he did a munch on a ham-sized strawberry.
volcanoes rumble,
tornadoes spin
in the distance but it is all behind him.
The humans have left the scene departing
in fear of upcoming disasters.
The lion and the frog continues on,
while the ham-sized strawberries continue to fall
from the trees.
another frog dances on the lion’s paw,
serene in its safety.
