I am a Tiger by Lashawn Wiley

I am a tiger, feirce and fearless at first glance,

I am a tiger, terrorizing my pray upon my advance,

I am a tiger, killing what I must to survive,

I am a tiger, dodging the polchechers, depriving them of their prize,

I am a tiger, hoping not to be captured and caged as my kin,

Profited upon while doing life in their artificial den,

How can I guarantee my tomorrow against such a worthy foe,

Who hold all of the keys to this forien jungle,

How can I run and roar as nature truly intended,

How can I ensure true freedom for all of my descendants,

I have an idea! An idea that's witty and clever,

It will not only help me, but also my streak's future forever,

I will team up with the circus and endure the cruel pain,

Of being whipped, declawed, defanged and retrained,

I am cheered on during the day, housed and fed at night,

I roar like I'm free, enjoying the protected good life,

"l'm as smart as they come", bragging to my smug reflection,

I'll do just fine as long as I stick close to my protection,

The protection of the uniformed Ring Master and each uniformed crew,

For every single one of them know I bare not one single tooth,

Viewed by them as a cuddly oversized feline,

They pet me and rub me as I roam during free time,

One night a big commotion is stirred up late night,

Three large men break into my cage and take me off-site,

Without claws or teeth I'm rendered defenseless,

I pass out and came to behind new wooden fences,

"I am a tiger", I blurt out with a roar,

I must escape this place, this is not what I signed up for,

I spent the whole day planning my escape route,

Eureka, I broke free breaking my chain from the water spout,

Once again I'm free, running through unfamiliar streets,

The humans are running scared as if I still had all my teeth,

Black and white cars come racing with alarms,

Men wearing uniforms jump out pointing firearms,

I'm happy and pleased that these Ring Masters have arrived,

" I am a Tiger", I roar with relief and pride,

The uniformed men will know I'm no threat, they'll show the rest of these humans that I'm a big cuddly pet,

But the uniformed Ring Masters opened fire on me,

I fall to the ground as confused as one could be,

They were supposed to protect me and rescue me from this fray,

"I am a Good Tiger", whimpered my final roar as I fade.
