One of my poems in The Chill Turned Warm.
Like a Leopard I jumped on him.
Then I showed him my teeth and told him “you’ll be for dinner.”
My claws are to shred you to pieces.
Leave my family alone or I won’t let you out of my sight.
There will be no stopping me in the daylight.
Take heed and watch for me in the still of the night.
Leave my family alone or I’ll bite you with all of my might.
No one can catch me in the darkness of night.
You’ll be stalked all the days of your life.
Like a leopard I jumped on him.
Then I showed him my teeth and said ”you’ll be for dinner.”
My claws are for shredding you to pieces.
Don’t mess with my species.
