Everyone Wishes To Own A Lioness

Everyone whishes to own a Lioness
but no one likes her roar

they like her wildness
but abhores her untamed soul

domesticate her and chain like a dog
and guide her to wag her tail and lick your foot

forget carnivorous nature
and start eating vegatarian food

but then why chain a lioness
go bring a swine

its precious then all
my freedom is mine
