Deep inside of the forest, the creatures felt despair
The sound of gunshots echoed throughout the morning air
The time was hunting season, all the animals were forlorn
Accept for one young tiger, as his little heart was torn!
The men that held the boom machine were getting really near
Yet little John the tiger, had not the time to fear
He watched his Mama weeks ago when hunting for her pray
She lay inside a pool so red, these words he heard her say!
“Dear Lord please watch my little John, make his spirit strong
Please be there to comfort him, and may his days be long
Although I’m dying needlessly to make someone’s attire
They know not what just what they do.” Her breath then does expire!
The ground did shake the birds awake, a scurrying of wings
A flocking of the fearful kind, a sound of shrills do spring
Upon the floor the feathers fell, no chorus had these birds
Yet still John lay in wait alone, no roar from him was heard!
A little breeze of tiny wings landed by John’s side
This baby bird with eyes of tears, then onto John she flied
“Please don’t eat me Master John, my Mamma I can’t find.”
Upon the ground some feathers lay, John roared at humankind!
She spread her wings to cover eyes, something was then amiss
She felt much fear as John drew near, upon her head he kissed
A man approaches with his gun, with pound signs in his eyes
A trophy for him so he thought! the little bird then sighs!
John leapt to save this tiny bird, his roar was ever bold
He killed the gunman with one swipe, his temper now gone cold
He lifted her onto his back, then told her not to fear
As in his heart this bird now lay, he then shed one small tear!
Inside of the deep forest, where darkness once did live
Two friends hearts shine so brightly, now both do now forgive
There Mama’s watched them with much joy, from way up high above
As now deep inside this forest, two friends do share much love!
