Lions don't lose sleep over the 'pinion of sheep

from Flatbush Zombies – Palm Trees Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

A lion knows who it is so it doesn’t need to listen to the opinion of sheep; which are weaker than the lion. For you to think about what a lame thinks, it would only forfeit your place, power, and authority that you were given.

It could also allude to the “sheep” being people who are submissive, easily led, adapt to social norms, etc.

“Don’t lose sleep”, when someone cannot sleep they are urged to “count sheep”

‘A truly strong person does not need the approval of others any more than a lion needs the approval of sheep.’ — Vernon Howard, died 1992.
