Some will hate this, some will be proud. . .
Rudyard Kipling, of course.
When the Himalayan peasant meets the he-bear in his pride
He shouts to scare the monster, who will often turn aside.
But the she-bear thus accosted rends the peasant tooth and nail.
For the female of the species is more deadly than the male.
There’s much more, but this first part captures all the deliciousness. . .
