Rickit-Ticki-Tavi, Jaipur


Brave heart Mongoose
Short-legged mesmerist
Speckled grey coat,
Cruncher of scorpions,
Scourge of beetles and rats
Bush-tailed David
Defying jungle Goliaths
You never have egg on your face

Tiger-blood in a weasel skin
Face pointed with hunches
Sniffing a quick munch
You shoot up trees like a monkey
Whose tail is on fire
But slicker, quicker.

Little lithe mongoose
Who can lay King Cobra low
You need no armour,
No wonderful silver lance
As you reel your victim in
With your deadly dance
