THEY TRIED TO SLAUGHTER THE CUB

They tried to slaughter the cub.fw.png

They tried to slaughter the cub

They sharpened their knives

They plotted

They laughed

They cast lots

They played a stupid game to determine its fate

They tried to slaughter the cub

They didn’t see the lion guarding the cub

They tried to slaughter the cub

They hated its guts

They called it proud

They assumed it was weak

They thought it walked alone

They ignored “the shadow”

They tried to slaughter the cub

They didn’t see the lion observing it all

They tried to slaughter the cub

They were blinded by their hatred

They despised it

They wanted it dead

They wanted it gone

They approached the cub

They tried to slaughter the cub

They didn’t see the lion waiting

They tried to slaughter the cub

They signed their death warrant

They approved their own execution

The cub was unaware of the massacre

The lion erased their existence

The hedge remained unbroken

They tried to slaughter the cub

They didn’t see the lion waiting
