  • Tyger Tyger, burning bright,
  • In the forests of the night
  • How did you end up in there,
  • Trapped beneath my vacant stare?
  • Am I supposed to quake in awe
  • At thy claws, thy fearsome jaw?
  • Your growl and teeth, your mighty frame
  • Serve now for kids' amusement. Lame.
  • Rocky had thy fighter's eye
  • And he was quite a fearsome guy.
  • But Katy Perry has it now.
  • Is that cool? I can't see how.
  • Antelope are kept here, too.
  • But who will hunt them? Oh - not you.
  • Just give thanks your life is spent
  • In here, and not a circus tent.
  • Or in the wild, God forbid!
  • They found out where your cousin hid
  • And shot him: mighty predator
  • Now made a rug on someone's floor.
  • Tyger Tyger, burning bright
  • In the forests of the night
  • But it never gets as dark
  • Inside the Zoo's Safari Park.

Walt - hard to believe there are only just over 3,000 tigers left in the wild meaning all 5 remaining subspecies are critically endangered. Safari Park might be their best bed.
