The tiger
Paper though, yet it's a tiger.
Should I let it loose, or pull the leash?

Now I know the real culprit,
The pen is mightier than the sword

Through inert, dry darkness
When rhythm lights a torch

Nothing is more fearful-
So I've chalked a circle.

Yet tigers hiding here and there-
Why do they roam even today? Keep off, out!

Paper though, yet it's a tiger.
It shouldn't be let loose, so pull the leash.
