The Value Of Lions

Here is a poem about lions living out their lives in cages. I’ve often spent time thinking about the plight of elephants in captivity, but any animal spending its life in a cage is beyond sad. This poem reminded me of the Lion of Lucerne, though it was not exactly the same topic, it is about loss.  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~(Here are links to a couple of elephant sanctuaries I follow: https://www.elephants.com and https://www.sheldrickwildlifetrust.org/.     ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Also, here is info on the Lion of Lucerne monument: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lion_Monument)
