With bushy hair and golden eyes
I’m just a kitten in disguise.
Which can indeed appear hostile.
Whereas a tiny kitten’s purr
Makes people smile and stroke their fur.
And of course kittens prance around
Their four paws hardly touch the ground.
Occasionally I too like to play
But I mostly laze throughout the day.
Though mice can be a tasty snack
It’s the larger animals that I attack.
By night I hunt and stalk my prey
Zebra and antelope for this gourmet.
Yes I’m the king of creatures great and small
The fiercest and most powerful of all.
But beneath this majestic mane of gold
Beats a kitten’s heart, so sweet and bold.
