Tiger! Tiger!

By Ami (Gypsie) Offenbacher-Ferris

In Response to Bartholomew Barker’s Monday Poetry Prompt: Tiger

Tiger tiger in the night

you in your striped coat

full of wild delight

A stronger beast there’s never been

ruling the forests far and wide

until you battled the likes of man

An unfair war this is true

man alone without sword or gun

could not defeat one such as you

But man has never played the same

against beast, nor fowl

on the barren plain

Man it seems has the upper hand

seemingly taming streams, rivers

and raping your land

But in the end wild beasts will reign

and reclaim this planet that was yours

then royal tiger will be king again

  2. Thank you so much! Also, thank you for your kind, encouraging words during my extended illness. I won’t lie, it’s been tough, but I can feel the warmth from the light at the end of the tunnel now! ❤️

    I hope so. Isn’t it ironic that a microscopic virus is wiping out millions?
