Almost the End

He clung desperately to the rope,

Panic set in, he felt no hope.

What a stupid idea of his this was,

To think he could out-climb those paws.

Which padded below and circled round,

Waiting for him to fall to the ground.


A shout in the distance, then loud drums,

People were coming, he heard them run.

Snarling and roaring came from below,

Shots rang out, then nothing more.

He felt a hand guide his feet steadily down,

Relief engulfed him, he was safe and sound.
