Dreaming of Tigers

Dreaming of tigers
I awoke to find
A hungry cat
Asleep on a windowledge
Having spent all night
Fighting the tiger's
Of my mind
Now I know
That only
Tuna
Will do.

Poem for Teddy Sherringham

not the only
teddy boy
you weren't to be 
out done
when Sir Alex brought 
his hair dryer out
you went on the run
