Barbed Horizon

What could be more cruel than seeing a lion, the king of the jungle, trapped , acquiesced into submission with sedatives,forced behind a small cage; its freedom curbed and lashed into surrender by the inherent treachery of human being?

It is the cruelty of those standing outside the cage, watching this degradation of a royalty, turning it into an entertainment at the zoo, which bothers me more...

The abasement of man. The laughter, the tease. The safety of being cruel, while standing outside the cage.
