The strength of the Wolf

The Law of the Jungle
(From The Jungle Book)

by Rudyard Kipling

Now this is the Law of the Jungle —
as old and as true as the sky;
And the Wolf that shall keep it may prosper,
but the Wolf that shall break it must die.

As the creeper that girdles the tree-trunk
the Law runneth forward and back —
For the strength of the Pack is the Wolf,
and the strength of the Wolf is the Pack.

One of the most celebrated bowl cuts ever belonged to Moe Howard of the Three Stooges. Moe rocks that super bowl haircut!
