Tiger, Tiger

[Note: This poem may seem familiar to some of you, well at least the first line if nothing else. I was inspired to write this with the vague idea of William Blake's poem "The Tiger" in my head.]

Tiger, tiger burning bright

Hollow souls, starry night

Never fail, never falter

You shed your skin upon the altar

Bare your being for all to see

Cure the sick. The diseased

Upon the evil, be fair and just

Make them suffer. You must!

Let their lives slowly crumble

Let every step be a stumble

Make them sad, let them cry

But please donít ever let them die

Unsung song, unspoken word

Fly away, with the birds

Tiger, tiger burning bright

Let one and all see your might
