Tiger Cultivation - Poem by Kanishka SricharanPratap

Sal, Piasal, Shishu, Saguan...
Trees are vanished!

Tiger vanished
Bear vanished
Elephant vanished
Deer vanished...!

Now what is left
You will eat?
I will eat?

We need tiger
Only tiger,
Royal Bengal Tiger!

Will purchase,
Set free in this empty jungle.
Tiger will enter in village,
Kill and eat villagers.
Dead man's family will shout
Demand compensation,
To drive out tiger
Agitation will spread.

Camera will be set
Capture tiger's movement!
We set false nets,
Tranquilizer will fail.

Elephant will be brought
From border state
To hunt the tiger.
Gunman sitting on elephant
Will be fire
At air!

Month will passed after months...,

One day we feed opium
To elephant.

The game of hundred crores
Will score a lot!

Tiger on it's way...
Elephant on it's way...
We are on our ways...

Our pocket will be hot!
