Blood Lions

South African Farmers

once many grew

fruits in the sunshine

but sadly their  view

of food for the people

and export abroad

disregarded their earnings

it felt like t no reward

they moved onto Lions

harvesting Lions

petting the cubs

humanising them all

supplying the hunters

with victims

their  school

of thought was  more profits

from killing big game

criminality surfaced

exploitation by name

drugged up containment

released for a kill

the bones shipped to vietnam

the blood they did spill

on a regular basis

from devious men

who could shoot

what they thought

were wild  sadly when

the farmed  lions

were placed where the hunters could shoot

it brought in a vast bounty

a great deal  of loot

productivity up

cruelty too

getting overseas workers

to work yes  all through



they were  helping the  cause

hand over fist

no time to pause

full on criminality

cruelty too

these stations  of filth

were a vile kind of zoo

this is not farming

its squalor and pain

blood Lions  the guilty

an ugly campaign.

South Africa knows

what is happening here

criminality took over

spreading its fear.
