The Circle of Life
(from the Lion King musical)

From the day we arrive on this planet
And blinking, step into the sun
There's more to see than can ever be seen
More to do than can ever be done

There is far too much to take in here
More to find than can ever be found
But the sun rolling high
Through the sapphire sky
Keeps great and small on the endless round

It's the circle of life
And it moves us all
Through despair and hope
Through faith and love
Till we find our place
On the path unwinding
In the circle
The circle of life

It's the circle of life
And it moves us all
Through despair and hope
Through faith and love
Till we find our place
On the path unwinding
In the circle
The circle of life
=Cecil The Lion

Cecil the African lion, supposedly protected in his game park.
Hunters lured him to his death with fresh meat.
Walter Palmer, the dentist from Minnesota, the 'brave hunter',
He had perfect, ultra-bright teeth.

Cecil the marvellous lion
Killed by a puffed up dentist
With longbow and arrows.
This 'valorous' vainglorious gaffe
Confronting, frightening
The vulnerable lion.
Sentence offenders!
Hang the demon felon!
Fee-fie-fo-fuck him!

Cecil the African lion
Roared in pain,
Pierced through
His heart.
Cecil the lion's
Decapitated
And skinned.
Arrgghh!

Tourists liked
Cecil the lion.
People - save the lions,
Value them in future.
Hold on
Never hunt
To the death.
Oh no! Oh no! Oh no!
