Leopard

A leopard lives beneath a house on Main,
and no one knows just how that came to be.
By night she prowled her sculpted lawn terrain,
and just ate cats. One morning came when she
absconded with the FedEx package man.
The papers claimed that he and Mrs. Cho
(of that same street), skedaddled to Japan
and left his parcel truck, so as to throw
his wife off scent from learning of their tryst.
When Mrs. Cho returned alone a few
days thence, then left again, all smelled a twist,
but no one knew that leopard ate her, too.
Oh clever Man! So much to misconstrue!
What lurks beneath Your porch, and looks up through,
and licks it's leopard lips while watching you?
