A Lion, Lying by Rowena M Love

A Lion, Lying – Rowena M Love

The Lion of Scotland lies
beneath Salisbury Crags,
its Corrennie pelt ruffled
with symbolism.
Has time tamed it to a domestic tabby
whose petulant yams –
the politicians’ “I am”s –
make a mockery of a hundred men?
Twenty tons of granite sits unblinking,
letting you make up your own mind.
