"Keep peace with the lords of the jungle, the tiger, the panther, the bear;
And trouble not Hathi the Silent, and mock not the boar in his lair."the Law for the Wolves
by Rudyard Kipling.
this could be the most difficult rule for the wolves in general. i cannot imagine any 'big bad wolf' to be so demure and settled and does not stir up a hoo-har in the forest with the other 'lords'.
hence, this image that goes with the stanza depicts the wolf in his naughty moment running away after he had some fun disturbing whoever-is-the-big-shot. haha.
