Caged Animal .... by LauraBroussard

I am a caged animal….
just give me directions,
maybe, I will jump through your hoops.

Whip me into shape,
then give me a treat.

I want to please you,
if you piss me off, bad enough,
My force,…….
you will reckon with.

I will continue to jump through your hoops….
just to please you…..
do right by me.

    Ohh the image is stunning Laura….I love cats….and did cringe to see them jumping through fire hoops….It just does not sit right with me.
    I visit them at Zoos and some have better habitats than others but the circus stuff leaves me a little cold….fire and all….
    This is not a reflection on your fine work….just me rambling on about the cats that I love…x

  • Yes, I totally understand, Arcadia…. that same feeling was inside me too while I was watching them perform, I was also a bit nervous that they may turn on their master…. like a horrific turn of events.
    This is another reason I wrote the words to this photo from the Tiger’s perspective.
