Tabby Has Turned Into A Tiger - Poem by Mark Nyamekye Boadi

Tabby has turned into a tiger
He will no longer remain docile
For there is no use in being sober
When the atmosphere is hostile


All is not well
Tabby has a story to tell
There are fumes of hate in the air
He could not hide his anger
And has turned into a tiger


Tabby has moved into the forest
Because he has been bitten
By animals he considered dearest
But he is no longer a kitten


They have created a wound so deep
It caused Tabby to weep
Making him move into the jungle
Because his feelings would no longer be hidden
He will consider the domestic land forbidden


The Tabby they knew
Has become wild
Hiding steadily amongst the yew
Sending a strong message to every parent and child


Tabby has turned into a tiger
He wishes to remain in the jungle forever
No longer at ease
No longer taking in fire
No longer doing what they require


Tabby has turned into a tiger
He is no longer open
For he cannot hide his anger
And has become outspoken


Tabby has turned into a tiger
He has now changed
Because he was estranged


Tabby has turned into a tiger
Do not be amazed at his actions
For treatments elicit reactions


Tabby has turned into a tiger
He will no longer hide his anger
And will remain in the jungle forever.
