The Lion As A Scientist

Which lion, where, and when,
found a man within its den
and stopped before him, and with a leer
found that he was absent fear
and paced a study of the subject,
saw pulsing veins within the neck
surmised an angle of attack
and cautiously, let the man go back –
which lion, in what far year
first saw and slew a lonesome deer –
and sunk his jaws through a brittle spine
and passed this knowledge through all of time
