The lion is alone for being not
In this he is unique among his kind
With others he will cast his lonely lot
Another social cat you will not find
The house cat throws a hissy fit for one
The tiger chooses solitary woe
The cheetah's favorite eye contact is none
The jaguar always RSVPs no
So wherefore this proclivity divide
Preventing him from ever going stag?
We could attempt to blame it on his pride
Perhaps he needs an audience to brag
Though pride's a sin — a deadly one, at that
Without his pride, a lion's just a cat
