Sumatran Tiger
Through the forests of Sumatra

Pads through bamboo, palm, liana
Powerfully swims across the water
Webbed feet pounding...

Premium Member VOICE


Listen now
Morning arrives;
Mystic voice

~~~~~~~~~


Dawn speaks
Fond sighs;
Haze loiters

~~~~~~~~~


Sun-block hazy
Fuzzy logic;
Sumatra fires

Ashy contrast
Smoky smelly;
Foreign stench permeates

Hazy shades
Photoshop contrast;
Smoky air

~~~~~~~~~


Deeper meaning
Beyond stuff;
Profiteering woes

~~~~~~~~~


Nero's antics
Witty wise;
Hazy surprise

~~~~~~~~~


Crash and burn
No...

Waiting time
Loiters long;
Tentative tact

Unfinished
Block booking;
Time seeps away

Hazy complaints
Ashy sky blurring;
Smoky air blots

~~~~~~~~~


Drowsy notes
Morning haze floods;
Cranky moods

~~~~~~~~~


Burning smog
Hazy indiscretions;
Madness percolates

~~~~~~~~~


Sad and sorry
Same old story;
Sooty somehow

~~~~~~~~~


Cash and...

Blur smog floods mist
Ashy breeze gist


Haze floats and swirls
Choked airy world


Cough on demand
Cause claims refund

Smog finds new lease
