The way they were.
Not a myth but it sparked a legend.
This brought the king of the cats to the throne.
Defending territory and hunting at will.
Would not get me to enter the area without the hunter by my side.
With teeth like that what couldn’t it kill and eat?
Hunting the prey knew they were had.
Defending nothing had a chance.
It is our loss to never have met this great cat.
Can’t be sure if I’ eat a steak without bring it the cattle.
Would it make a good pet?
