Hold That Tiger

A tyrant can shoot down a tiger but shakes in fear when someone whispers a poem.

A poem whispers down a tyrant but shakes when a tyrant shoots a woman.

A woman is a tiger shooting poems through a tyrant's dreams.

Twice in the chest, once in the shoulder, and once in the head at point-blank range.

Hold that tiger, hold that tiger...

- Mark Mordue
