I used to like the lion

King of the Jungle, he!

But then I saw – really saw – the tiger

So utterly wild is she

It was in her eyes and how she ranged –

restless but unfree.

So now I like the tiger best

she’s the one for me



I wrote a poem for today’s prompt but I’m not happy with it. Maybe I’m not happy at all today, for various reasons. ROAR! Might still publish the on-prompt one but, for now, you get this. Thanks to Jade M Wong’s lion poem for reminding me I had this one to write.
