Tiger “You Woke Me Up…”

As I slept in peace,

you woke me up in greed.

I rested my head in nature’s lap,

You saw me, you liked and aloud you clapped.


Every passerby stood, took out their machines and clicked-clacked,

The sleep that had just ventured in, went back.

More the dreaded look I gave,

You clicked more and thought it was brave.


All I wanted for heaven’s sake was to rest,

But you thought, to click, this was the time that you gave your best.

Irritated and agitated, I got up and left,

You woke me up, and I call it a silent theft.

-Yours Truly “Resting Tiger”
