Plot Description

Spoiler warning! The lion loves to eat a lot of red and tender meat. The narrator is trying to entice him from his lair, but the lion will not say which meat is his favorite. Is it crispy pork or rabbit-pie? Is it curried beef or a big plump hen? The lion finally answers, “The meat I am about to chew / Is neither steak nor chops. IT’S YOU.”
