TIGER


I know a tiger
And I continue to let it surprise me

But I am the predator
For expecting it to change

Really how can a tiger
Apologize for its stripes

I put a tiger by my side
I liked the attention and imagery

But despite all my hope I know it will never be
The kitten I tell people it is inside

Yes I know a tiger
And I can’t blame it when it STRIKES

It is ignorant
It can’t comprehend and step outside

How long can I ignore
And let the tiger roam in my life?

I know a tiger
And it will never know it is a tiger

And that
Is the problem

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
