As flies land proudly
On his nose and ears.

Not babbling! To you
Spill the beans.

Rory’s just a kid at best

Rory’s young but not inspired 
Tiger says he’s very tired

Bloodthirsty tiger lies in wait to tear dog's flesh from bone,
Elsewhere, dog nurses an orphan tiger cub, licking and washing,
God looks down from His throne in heaven and smiles on them both.
