A Tiger - Poem by Kapali Kaali

A tiger
The name itself is ferocious
But imagine a tiger
Without teeth and
Without claws
Can it hunt
Can it kill others
Perhaps a tiger
Without teeth and
Without claws
Is like a dead tiger
Or a no tiger
It cannot hunt
It cannot kill others
It cannot drink
The blood of others
So why to fear
A dead tiger
Or a no tiger
Let it come
And live with us
In human jungle
With its toothless
And clawless body
Let it repent
Its violent past
Let it see
How others live.
