Step Lively, by Bo

Street people realize a limp attracts robbery or trouble. Street fighters may feign injury to draw the foe. Walking lost the Florida swamp a few years ago, gators everywhere, my mantra was 'step lively' hour after hour. I'd heard reptiles detect the fatigued by gait. Once in Iquitos, Peru, I sat at the base of the Bengal tiger cage for study. She was a gigantic pussy cat like the smallers I'd handled hundreds of times in vet school. In five minutes it reached through the bars and grabbed my tank top drawing me in with claws on a huge mitt. I tore the shirt to escape, lesson learned. Some vets of Sand Valley wouldn't think of picking on a weak prey.
