This work has reached the exceptional level
"Lion Friend" by Ross E Silke
Lion saith not a word
as I hold him close;
his gentle mane
I often stroke.


He does not bite
nor growl at me;
I'm rather fond of he.
No sharp claws

or ferocious teeth.
In my arms I wish to keep
close to myself during
this virus storm

when a lion friend
keeps me warm;
we cozy up
and fight Covid-19.


This tender lion
seems to keep me clean
in heart and mind, and in my thoughts
as I do all I can, until then

when no virus is sought;
this lion cannot get it caught.

Pays one point and 2 member cents.
