Wild War

And the lion glares through the dun forest, to the sand spread before his eyes, “Leopard’s Kingdom” he snarls.
The orange glow beset his soul.

Out went legions of Bears to a battalion of Meerkats, death.

Out went a regiment of Deer to the Squadrons of Armadillos, eradication.

Out went a brigade of Mice to the platoon of Snakes, destruction.

Out went a task force of Raccoons to the garrison of Coyotes, annihilation.

Carcasses pile along the horizon and the leopard met the lion in blood

– From to the Evening Star by William Blake
