Highschool is a Jungle

The Alpha, Victorious leader
He's the vile, vicious tiger
Paws away at his meal,
Sitting on his throne

One step ahead, but always stays back
The snake hides himself in shadows
Someday he'll break and shake from his skin

The sloth up to no good, except being good for nothing
Sits high, like he's on a mountain
Spends time merely watching, the world pass him by

The hummingbird flutters words of only peace
She's a fragile glass vase
While so strong for herself, and everyone else

The hunter wolves persist when their mind is made
Often not after anything at all
SNAP! Their jaws break loose when they find their prey.
They prefer peace, but will tear you to pieces.

She's a sunrise in pink, sparkling like the water in the sun
Your eyes fuel her ever-growing ego
Alive in feathers, but dead underneath

Now that you're in highschool,
Welcome to the Jungle.
