Bengal Betty

Bengal Betty

A Chapter by Dave Brown



When Betty Bengal tiger prepared a fine feast

She knew her cubs had an intolerance to yeast

It could cause things such as anxiety and depression

Staying away from, was her mate’s wise suggestion


Instead they would gnash it down all real raw

Which related to each defenseless creature they saw

Even if was a cute puppy dog or an adorable cat

She and her mate would quickly, take care of that


The wee ones were taught to slash and gnash it apart

With healthy competition over a still beating heart

From Daddy and Mommy came a valuable bequeath

Their cute faces contained food processors for teeth


When the meal was over and was time to clean up

Their great rough tongues would slup, slup, slup

Then with blood and nasty bits off their mittens

They would all lay back and purr like cute kittens

Nice rhyming, Dave. Did not know yeast would cause anxiety and depression in tigers. How exactly does a tiger commit suicide? Do they leave a note?
