a modern day jungle

we're all in a bundle

the lions teaching ground 

with vultures all around

always pushed and shoved 

too scared to look above

gazelles run and hide 

when lions take their stride

fearing the vultures vengeance

the gazelles fight through the torments

the vultures screech, peck, peel, and destroy

the gazelles all feel their just some toy

the lions only make it worse

for the vultures feel no remorse
