The Sweetest Strawberry:
A man traveling across a field encountered a tiger.
He fled, the tiger after him.

and swung himself over the edge.

Trembling, the man looked down to where,
far below, another tiger was waiting to eat him.
Only the vine sustained him.

Grasping the vine with one hand,
he plucked the strawberry with the other.
How sweet it tasted.
