Big Cats!!

Whose eyes shine in the night like balls of fire? Whose paw could break a whole empire? Whose strength could dam a river in niger? I say, It is the Indian Tiger. Who could use its paw to break, A great stag's skull and overtake, A antelope running toward the horizon? I say, it is the African Lion. Whose voice is a scream instead of a roar? Who drops down from its tree on a boar? Whose leap is far and its aim sure? I say, It is the American Cougar. Whose speed can fly past the great giraffe? Who at our run would surely laugh? Who lives on the dry plains of Africa? I say, it is the spotted cheetah. Whose leap is accurate and eyes very keen, Who like a house cat keeps very clean? Who eats birds and mice a lot? I say, it is the sly ocelot! Who is smaller than the ocelot and faster than a deer? Whose ears are very keen and it's vision far and clear? Who reminds me at least of the Egyptian Sphinx? I say, it is the Canadian Lynx. Who runs quite fast up trees so high? Who in races with dogs would only tie? Who eats other prey but mostly the rat? I say, it is the little bobcat. Now who does man consider friend? Who with mice a hand does lend? Who plays with paper and this and that? I say, it is the tiny house cat!
