Lions and Piranhas – Thursday 19th September 2019

Lions and Piranhas

working with them
is like –
juggling piranhas
whilst –
placing your head
into the mouth of a hungry lion
that is not correct
it is more like a pride of hungry lions

my, my, my,
juggling piranhas,
if you are not careful you will lose an eye
i could swim,
with everso hungry sharks
and risk myself less harm
both the lions and the piranhas
look at my tasty arms

working with them
is like,
juggling piranhas
your head,
in the pride,
of every mouth of every hungry lion
