The Tiger and the Zebra

They can be seen through the bars and behind the glass Some have fancy patterns and others with stripes They run and hide so they can’t be seen If you get too close they can get real mean But they are irresistible, like a magnet to steel So the people keep coming day after day With their cameras and video devices To make a memory for their friends to see Some are exotic and others are erotic Fun to watch in their native land Others make you sad, wish to lend a hand Everyone has their favorite posted on the wall In books, computers, and cameras too They seem to be everywhere for all to see They thrive on attention and strive for fame But now they’re cadged in their own little world Without escape… only left with their dreams So they’re watched behind the glass or through the bars Like a tiger… or a zebra
