Tiger's Terror

Tiger's Terror

A Poem by G. K. Bostic

Acrostic from picture prompt






















Tempest tears into flesh of lives like tigers teeth
Into carcass of deer…shredding its frame
Gorging itself with the very heart,
Eating up lives and leaving a jungle with
Remains to be scavenged by starving spirits.

The image of the tiger and the events in our midwestern states came together in my mind.

Beautifully voiced love! This is absolutely spot on, if I may use that phrase!
The tiger - yes, but also humanity! Saddening but this is so powerful!
