A side effect of discovering the elixir of immortality
used to be
That tigers would obey you. (Scholars still debate
What position jaguars, cheetahs and ocelots would take.
Lions, it is known, would just look worried
As if you spoke some language they'd long forgotten.)
In these sad days, though, the most to be expected
Is that cats will sometimes bid you good day.
