To her tis sweet
The red drippings
From her fangs
Hangs fresh flesh
And muscle
From fragile

For miles and
Thousands of years
The African lands
As been her rightful
Home she wears it like
A crown and seats it
Like a thrown

She stands off any
Predator with complete
Authority she's queen
Of the jungle the
Deadliest creature

From the tit bits
Of prairie mice
To the meaty antelope
Though sometimes they
Elope she is patient
In the marriage

She pants but in
Satisfaction along
With her eyes
In headlights
Shine bright
Like demon eyes
Is a smile from
A lioness

Shades of Penelope
Somehow this reminded me of Pen. It's a bit more "raw," however. Still, I'm sure it's something she would like. However, you're style is uniquely your own, and though I tripped over the fourth stanza (thinking antelope instead of elope and stumbling over too many "but"s in an incomplete sentence), I enjoyed this poetic snapshot of a meal and the diner's emotions very much.
