Panther

Have you heard the Panther’s roar? A sickly sweet odor. He traps his prey in his paws, devours them with beastly jaws. Have you heard the Panther’s roar? Three torpid days, he’ll snore. Appetite he can’t sate. Constant hunger is his fate. Have you heard the Panther’s roar? He requires so much more. Dragon eludes him despite his feat. He’ll never taste the other white meat.

Very fine penning, Linda. Looks like a winner in the contest to me... By the way: If called by a panther, don't anther. (That's courtesy of Ogden Nash). Smiles, Gershon

Thank you Belle. I really hated to delete them, but wanted to meet requirements for the contest. Once the contest is judged, I will re-insert the two and notify you of the update. :)

I enjoyed reading this, Linda and love the repetition of the first line which draws our attention to the most important fact about the myth. If it's for the contest, I believe that Julia asked for a maximum of 12 lines but do check with her. Each verse stands in its own right luckily.

Thank you Wendy! I removed two stanzas. It still makes sense (I think). Fun to write anyway :) Linda
