Leopard

~by Gretchen Kreps

Eons ago, when the earth was still yeasty,
The leopard, my love, was an unspotted beasty,

Photobucket

Unsullied as sunlight, not one spot or two spots.
Alas! He was snared for the simmering stew pots!

Photobucket

But too many cooks shaking shakers of spices
Created a much needed moment of crisis.

Photobucket

He leaped for his life while the cooks were kerchooing
And fled, all the fleet-footed natives pursuing.

Photobucket

He escaped! But his fur was still salted and peppered,
And that's how there came to be spots on the leopard.

  1. Hello there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?
    I'm getting sick and tired of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
