Dedicated to Dr. Robert B. Ingram


A lion, majestic, roars
His powerful tail aloft, ready for action
His roar is heard, respected
And valued by many
He's their natural leader.

But after the Chase
The wise lion
Retreats to rest
And replenish his awesome strengths
As well as to renew his Vision
To analyze the effectiveness of his strategies
To formulate new goals.

Thus, the lion refreshed and revitalized
Charts a New course
As his pack waits patiently
To hear his mighty, thunderous Roar -
Resounding once again.
