Why should we listen to our king?
Because you are a tiger!
We’ve no position for doubting
the dangers of your ire!
And when you walk about prowling,
we won’t disturb you either –
for we’re certain you’re crouching
to strike as a spitfire!
Woe if we ignore your growling,
and defy you, sire –
we know that you’ll be disemboweling
us as you desire!
