Similar to "The Canvas" this was written at the same time and is about Tigers

The Orange and White Stripes

Stalking its prey

Sunk to the floor

Stealth by nature

Soundlessly, Effortlessly, Successfully

Gliding through the warm morning sky,

Glistening and shining as the Sun,

Graceful by talent,

Guiding, Growing, Growling


Blood ran cold

Buried by time

Blue blood, Red blood, Black blood

Laid as a rug

Lean for meat

Lethal by trade

Lead, Metal, Leer

The Tiger endangered

The crime

The death by poachers

The orange and white stripes
