I didn't Have to Outrun the Lion

A man and I were in a tent when we heard a lion roar.
I knew that I had to start running or I wouldn't be alive anymore.
That guy said "You must be crazy, a lion can't be outrun."
But I didn't have to outrun the lion, I had to outrun that man.
The lion caught up with that man and ate him.
I was faster, that's why he met a fate so grim.
If I had been slower, I would've been that lion's dinner.
But I was very determined, that's why I was the winner.
If you and another person hear a lion, you'd better put on your running shoes.
And you'd better pray that you're faster or your life is something you'll lose.


(This is a fictional poem.)
