When Tiger decides between fight or flight

Blind to tiger’s pain,

Deaf to tiger’s heaving groan

Stilled to tiger’s suffering

Sitting bare on cage’s floor

Wondering between fight or flight

To run from cracking whip and stinging slights

Out of sound and out of sight

It’s leftovers, or nothing at all


Fight or flight

for only one is right

Lusty roaring already stilled

along with passions quelled

curl in thy corner

out of sound.

out of sight.
