Me as a Tiger

within me burns the fire,

a passionate, primordial fire,

a blazing fire, a raging fire,

I am the hunter, you are the prey.

 

within me surges the power,

a savage, ancient power,

a seething power, a screaming power,

I am the hunter you are the prey.

 

within me pounds the devil's soul,

a heartless, instinctive soul,

a snarling, clawing, stalking soul,

I am the hunter, you are the prey.

 

 

with a nod to William Blake

The End
