Measuring Man (#27)

How do lions and tigers do it
They roam
They hunt
They eat and rest
No money
No credit
No possessions
They hang in broods
They know where they stand
They leave when life is too rough

I’m not interested in that
I sit
I gather
I eat and nap as I wish
Some money
Good credit
A few things of import
I hang with my family
Knowing where I stand
And it’s never rough enough for me to leave

So I’ll let the lions and tigers
Wage their battle for survival
While we get together
For celebrations of life
Not wanting for anything
Not caring for the rat race
Only needing the gentle touch
Caring words
And strength found in
Family
