The legendary Daniel.

Of course he is a tribal fiction, but
I wonder why I and everyone else
have never queried the Lions' Den.
Were there lions 2,500 years ago
in Babylonia, Assyria and Persia ?
Do lions really have dens ?
And is it not more likely that Daniel
was tossed into a squalid lion cage (or pit)
in a royal Persian zoo ?
And is it really silly to ask such a question
about a hero-story
that is patently untrue ?
