The Gazelle that got away

There once was a hunter called Ray, Who went big game shooting one day. As he stalked a gazelle, A lion caught his smell, And the predator became prey.

Wow! Powerful last line, Jack. It seems that under nature's laws all predators become prey at one time or another. Really enjoyed the humor, but the message came through like a tornado bursting into a mobile home park. (LOL) Sure to be a winner in the "one that got away" contest! Love, Carolyn
