After the cartoon film The King and The Birds. This is a French cartoon, an adaptation of a Danish fairytale. In the story, the shepherdess and the chimney sweeper who loved each other walked out from the imperial painting frame, hand in hand.

to escape the king
they fled to the underground prison
their arrival let everyone know
that there was light above

but knowledge and faith are not the same thing

the only one who believed was a blind singer
for this he was thrown to a pride of hungry lions
but the lions liked his voice and music
didn’t eat him
they wanted the shepherdess and the chimney sweeper
love meant nothing to them

twenty years later, when I watched again this cartoon
I couldn’t remember the romance of the shepherdess and the chimney sweeper getting out from the frame
but I remembered the shabby look of the blind man singing

sometimes I imagine there’s light upstairs
but mainly I’m a hungry lion
