~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Rampaging tiger, once gentle girl, spare us our lives! Reduce us not to blood-spray with your lethal knives! Lop not our red and raw necks with your wicked and brutal claws and glinting wry fangs! You are kindly and not a bad monster with a sly and voracious gut! Have for our wet tears some wee pity! This we beg, O rakshasa! Please, remain vegetarian! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This poem is shaped like the Japanese character for death (死 ****) and is dedicated to my pal ShiftingTiger on AllPoetry.com! She happens to have been afflicted by some sort of teenage lycanthropy, so we try to give her moral support and vegetarian encouragement whenever possible.
