Tiger, Tiger (Not Kipling) - Poem by Elena Plotkin

Tiger, Tiger, up a tree.
Tiger, Tiger come to me.
Tiger, Tiger locked in a cage.
Tiger, Tiger placed in a rage.
Tiger, Tiger do not growl.
Tiger, Tiger do not scowl.
Tiger, Tiger will not leap.
Tiger, Tiger put to sleep.

    the last line was a boo hoo line. (i'm thinking 'death' sleep here) : ( is it the man-eater?
