To be a Tiger

To be a Tiger

By May Kwek

I cannot help but think
That I would be a pretty good tiger
Because I like the solitary
And I also like fire

Don’t you think then
That a flaming coat would be nice?
With days in the forest deep
And streams as cool as ice?

To laze around and sleep all day
And continue to do so at night
To hunt when I am hungry
And win every fight?

But then there is a problem
A very grave one indeed
For a hunter would kill me
If his sound I do not heed

But then again I still think it’s nice
To live life wild and free
Away from all these burdens
And society’s contraries

So yes I would like to be a tiger
And hide in the forest all day
And at night to use the moon
 To guide my lonely way
