Why do people poison lions?

They eat the cattle

The indigenous would kill

a lion

through rite of passage

to become a Man

and protect the cattle

now they are Lion Guardians

but now nobody new

understands poison danger

tradition and rite

and lions die

as do we.

This reminds me of a conversation I had with a five year old -

Me - "and what do lions eat?"
5 year old - "they only eat vegetarians"
