Leopard Man - Poem by Syed Ahmed Shah
‘If you eat this you will be brave and strong like a leopard'
Said the superstitious villager offering his son a portion
Of the leopard flesh enthusiastically cooked by his wife.
‘But father, I don't want to become a leopard' -said the son,
‘If I become one, I will have nothing to eat and
Nowhere to go; people will chase me and kill me'.
