Tigers and lions, loose in Ohio,
die en masse far from their homes.
You have to believe at least some of the hunters
find it fun to take down such exotic interlopers
so close to their own front doors.
Meanwhile the power brokers of the globe
watch the crowds massing before their armored doors
asking for them to open up those gates and even up
the score. You better believe some of the gatekeepers
are dreaming of Ohio this morning.
