For "Dee"...circa 1970"s


A lioness runs to a cave seeking shelter

The keeper of the cave feeds her

He is lonely and needs her closeness

She reciprocates with love for she feels his need

The cave becomes tiring

The keeper won't let her out

He's afraid she won't come back

He has made it so

The lioness would have returned out of desire

Now she runs from the fear of captivity

Fate has traded love unfairly.
