The Tiger

God made the birds
But the birds
Made the tigers
Did you know that?
They lined us up
On the jungle floor
They said
We made your eyes deep
We sharpened your teeth
We tied them together
With string
One will always do
To the other

They said
We will bind
Your ribs
With stripes

Pull my tail
I will unravel
I will lay my head
On your belly
Finally
Finally
