Red Wolf Returns from the Mountains

When the wolf gets red, he becomes an ugly customer.
ليوه چه سور کيږي ګنده کيږي
Bannuchis say this of Wazirs, but its general application is that a man, whom one has punished or injured, becomes all the more dangerous.

Wolf in Gilgit Baltistan, Pakistan

The red wolf if walking
From the mountains has come
Where licking his wounds
He before this had gone.

He howls at the moon
Moon hides behind cloud
Revenge is honour
Peace will not be allowed.

Some dismiss it as a dog
And call it a cur
Beware the returning wolf
With the matted red fur.

Have your say...
