“Don't ever give up.
Don't ever give in.
Don't ever stop trying.
Don't ever sell out.
And if you find yourself succumbing to one of the above for a brief moment,
pick yourself up, brush yourself off, whisper a prayer, and start where you left off.
But never, ever, ever give up.”
― Richelle E. Goodrich

font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">The<br />stripes of Orange and Black,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">Sat<br />stalking the unsuspecting prey.</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">The<br />prey would never be able to look back,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">It<br />would sit, never knowing beside it the danger did lay.</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">The<br />Tiger began to get into pouncing position,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">The<br />Zebra heard a disturbing sound,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">Their<br />instinct told them they would soon have to run,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">They<br />would have to leap and Bound.</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">The<br />tiger bared its teeth, and let out a terrifying growl,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">It<br />then leaped out, hoping to kill in a single bite,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">But<br />the Zebra had heard it prowl,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">And<br />it took up at speed enough to take flight.</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">The<br />Tiger let out an enraged roar,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">Then<br />it began to run after the beast.</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">Its<br />paws hardly touched the floor,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">In<br />its eye the Zebra was a feast.</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">It<br />ran and ran and ran,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">Its<br />hunger was its deadliest weapon.</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">But<br />the zebra does something it still can:</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">It<br />swerved, and went back towards the Sun.</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">The<br />tiger let out a snarl of rage,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">How<br />dare its prey try to outwit him?</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">My<br />claws and teeth are stronger than a steel cage, </font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">And<br />I am fast enough to reach the rim,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">Of<br />the worlds end,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">So<br />I am sure that my prey really is doomed,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">However<br />skilfully its track may bend,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">Behind<br />it, my predatory danger always loomed.</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">I<br />begin to leap after my fleshy meal,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">Who<br />tries to outwit me.</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">The<br />Hunter and Prey cycle is real,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">That<br />is what that Zebra will see.</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">I<br />race across the sandy plains,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">While<br />the Zebra is racing, My teeth snap at its heels,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">I<br />am more dangerous than a Monsoons rains,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">I'm<br />sure that is what that Zebra feels.</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">But<br />then, my prey changes course again,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">It<br />runs onto sharp and rocky land.</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">But<br />still I chase the prey over the pointy Plain,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">There<br />wasn't a single grain of sand, </font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">But<br />to be fed, I have to chase through the worse places.</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">I<br />let out a huge roar,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">Snarling out 'I have won all<br />races,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">Across<br />the land my claws soar,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">My<br />ferocity is great,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">I'll<br />rip you limb from limb,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">And<br />even if you force me to scar my paws on slate,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">Your<br />fate will be grim.”</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">But<br />alas! My prey went faster than the wind,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">And<br />outran my skills,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">It<br />had sinned,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">The<br />hunter was supposed to eat the kills.</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">But<br />then I spotted another possible kill,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">A<br />wild, thick, juicy Buffalo,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">That<br />would give me my stomach fill,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">And<br />unlike Zebras, It cannot run as fast as a flying crow.</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">I<br />slowly stalk my food,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">Moving<br />to sandy ground.</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">I<br />was so hungry, I would strip its carcass nude,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">It<br />wouldn't hear a sound.</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">I<br />went into a crouch,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">Bared<br />my fangs,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">Continued<br />to sight the Buffalo in a slouch,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">I<br />could not call for gangs,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">I<br />am a lone hunter,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">I<br />eat by myself,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">I<br />saw the Sun glisten on the Buffalo's fur,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">I<br />would enjoy eating it myself.</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">I<br />then pounced,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">Hoping<br />to strip its skin,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">But<br />then off the Buffalo bounced,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">It<br />would not let me win,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">At<br />least, not without a fight.</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">I<br />begin to chase,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">Trying<br />to intimidate with fright,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">I<br />swear I would win this race.</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">I<br />chase after the running buffalo meat,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">I<br />need to eat it before it reaches its pack,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">It<br />would have to be quite a feat,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"> <font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">I<br />would have lope over every ravine, stone, and crack,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">To<br />reach my satisfaction.</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">I<br />would enjoy eating all but the bones,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">I<br />was filled with frustration,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">If<br />I had to wait longer, I would be filled with starving moans.</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">I<br />saw the Buffalo herd in the distance,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">I<br />would have to reach the beast soon.</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">I<br />would have to pierce it with teeth like a lance,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">I<br />will chase over every dune.</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">I<br />decided I would take my chances,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">I<br />prepared myself to leap,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">I<br />then jump baring my lances,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">Hoping<br />to give my prey an endless sleep.</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">I<br />managed to reach the buffalo,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">claws<br />clinging to its hide.</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">I<br />had reached my meal, So,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">I<br />would eat my ride.</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">I<br />buried my canines in the beast,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">Clawed<br />its delicious flesh,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">And<br />began to feast,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">On<br />the meat so fresh.</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">The<br />buffalo screamed a cry,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">My<br />sharp teeth and claws digging into it.</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">My<br />refreshment was nigh,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">And<br />the Buffalo's skin opened a slit.</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">It<br />ripped a piece out with my powerful teeth,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">Chewed<br />it well,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">Its<br />taste was as beautiful as a coral reef,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">And<br />into my nostrils went a wonderful, meaty smell.</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">The<br />Buffalo fell to the floor,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">And<br />I continued to eat.</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">I<br />let out a triumphant roar,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">And<br />tucked into the extremely tasty meat.</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">I<br />started by ripping out part of the deliciousness,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">And<br />continued to eat more,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">I<br />had finally reached the tasty flesh,</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; font-weight: normal;"><font size="4" style="font-size: 16pt;">And<br />let out a small triumphant roar.</font></p><p align="CENTER" style="margin-bottom: 0cm;
