The King of the Jungle

by Jeffrey L. Michaux

Animal Opinions Contest Winner 
So you think that you're the king of the jungle,
I sometimes hear you roar,
The noise that comes from your mouth sometimes,
It shakes me to my core,
Why are you so lazy?
The women do your job,
Your attitude drives me crazy,
A spoiled and self-entitled slob,
I might not be as pretty as you,
I'm sure you're considered much hotter,
Strength for strength I'd break you in half,
Come play with me in the water,
Don't look around for the weakest one,
Come challenge me face to face,
How you became the king of the jungle~
To me is truly a disgrace......
