A Story of Friendship


Lion, jackal and vulture
Went along on their way.
To each other they showed culture
And divided their prays.

The bird was watching from the highs
And when it saw some deer
It gave a signal to the guys
The jackal lurked near

It chased the deer direction
Where the lion sprang
And there was not a real protection
From this wicked gang

But destiny expressed its might
And didn’t let things go
A poison snake did deadly bite
The lion on the paw.

Experiencing awful pain
The lion cried for water
But he was hoping all in vain
The jackal didn’t bother


The lion burned in cruel fever
It asked the bird for shade
Bird’s heart did slightly quiver
But still its friend betrayed.

In life you take some care
When you choose a friend
A lot of them take when you share
But aren’t beside in the end.

In this dear patience of my pain
