Written by Toyin Taiwo
Between the reticence of a phlegmatic,
And the bluntness of a choleric,
There you will find me.
My name is Judah – the crouching lion.
Teeth drenched in blood, I roar in my anger
Having just returned from devouring the prey
I fear no trouble; I regard no creature
The world is a jungle; the jungle is my home
I was born to rule and reign; I know no limitation
Eyes red as blood, teeth white as milk
I dwell and roam in the choicest of places
I’ve become a terror to those who don’t know me
In my hunger, I call out to my God
Faster than lightning, he answers my call
And shows me a prey, I must set out to devour
Swiftly I arise, without a delay
I pursue my prey, and surely overtake
My meal is assured, for my God does provide
And through every season
I always prevail, and cannot be defeated
Because my name is Judah, and I am the crouching lion

P.S. You may want to read Genesis 49:8-12, and Psalms 104:21,27. That’s where most of this piece comes from. Cheers!
