Liger By: Me

Orange
And striped
And rugged with fur,
He looked around
And came across an injured sloth.
A flash of white and a high pitched squeal,
And eyes of deep blue,
Wise and hard and slit.
Lithely,
Leisurely,
he crept– that strange beast,
Orange
And striped
And rugged with fur,
Part lion, part tiger,
Part neither– for his blood was cold.

 

Inspired by,”The Shark.” By: Edwin John Pratt.
