this poem contrasts a tiger in the zoo with the tiger in the natural habitat.

A tiger in the zoo

he stalks in his vivid stripes

the few steps of his cage

on pads of velvet quiet

in his quiet rage.

he should be lurking in shadow

sliding through long grass

near the water hole

where plump deer pass.

he should snarling around houses

at the jungle's edge,

bearing his white fangs,his claws,

terrorising the village!

but he's locked in a concrete cell,

his strength behind bars,

stalking the length of his cage,

ignoring visitors.

he hears the last voice at night,

the patrolling cars,

and stares with his brilliant eyes

at the brilliant stars.
