in chitwan tigers are on alert—

behave or else


doing what comes naturally

is a dangerous game


when you're up against bipeds

chances are you'll lose


but cooler minds prevailed

no scorched earth policy


rather—rehab and all the protein

you need


and if you're good (they say)

we'll send you home


here in chitwan it's a fair fight

mind your manners


and we'll all come out smiling

after mourning

Thanks for writing about Chitwan (Nepal). I've been to the National Park, and I can relate to what you're trying to convey. :)
