Tiger Stripes

Beautiful...
In the way that she slinks
Only in fresh meat
Is where her teeth will sink

See...
We made a friend
In her lonely prowl
She taught us how to hunt
How to distinguish fresh from foul...

She's beautiful
In how she quickly thinks
Heat flowing from what she eats
In her lonely cave where she sleeps

Oh, tiger tiger
How your colors match up to mine
Calculating and dangerous
Casting a darkness so Divine

Please don't leave
Not from their guns
The swine

Please, tiger tiger
Stay with me
Mix up your soul
To blend with mine

... And I'll see
You safe

The sorrow of you passing by
Is like a comforting memory
Thieved by those who let you die.

No beauty can be left alone in this world without poaching and the neverending lust held within this place is satiated with either death or disgrace.
