Trick! Trick! I leap and play...
Do I look like your innocent prey?
And do you think to catch me scared and running?
I dart from your eyes and devious mind...
And tag you fatal from behind...
Oh, how outrageously cunning!
Tricked again, oh, Snake of Dark -
I teach the Child of Lightning Spark -
and give her this, my Mongoose pelt,
to wear on her Heyokah belt.
I shall put on the Mongoose pelt,
and sidestep the Cobra's thrust-
moving swiftly, silently, subtly -
tagging the reptile's crust;
I honor the Mongoose Elder,
and learn Her lesson's key:
"Count coup, and keep the Power"
- the score - Advantage: Me.
