small head, round ears, slim
greyhound body, more doglike
than cat, the cheetah!

spotted fur, long tail,
always running, on the hunt
for food, the cheetah!

solitary cat,
she alone cares for her cubs,
good mother cheetah!

most don't survive; most
babies are killed by larger
prey--save the cheetah!

tearlines on its face,
seeming to cry at its lot:
endangered cheetah!
