Paul the Lion

Lion's Apology

I'm sorry,
so very sorry

I'm sorry I scream in your ears

I'm sorry you cried
after I lied

But please, O please!

of Mississippi
He grew up poor
on the Big Muddy
on the delta
amongst other poor negros
amongst poor white folks
amongst segregation, amongst racism
amongst hatred
But he and his guitar
would rise above
to play the rhythm
