I Panther, Black Of Night - Poem by Val Brooklyn Rogers

The fierce black jaguar, the terrible black tiger.
STRAIGHT through the fire.

I stalk. Panther black. Night.
The jungle is my home.

If you fear
I am here. Panther swift
If you dare, PANTHER sly.
I am near. Panther Victor!
The night affords my invisibility
Stirring in the midst of
Unsuspecting prey.

This PANTHER walks with silent
Intent. My black coat GLEAMING in
The glaring moon light.
Silken BLACK JET EXACT.

My allure is constant.
The big black cat.
If I am behind you.
You know that you are my
Prey.
Hunched low to the ground,
I lurk NIGHT.
I lurk day.
Cool.

I pounce, you PRAY.
