A TIGER IN THE ZOO

                                                  By Leslie Norris

Summary:-

     The poetry “A Tiger In The Zoo'' by Leslie Norris is about the difference between the natural existence of a tiger and the reality some of the tigers has to spend their lives on. The poet speaks about one situation where a tiger is inside a cage and moving from one corner to another. His stripes in his body and the paws can be seen very clearly. Watching the tiger, the poet thinks that he should have been in the forest hiding behind the long grass to attack a deer passing through that place. The poet also thinks that the tiger should have been terrorising the villagers, snarling around the houses. But unfortunately the tiger is in the prison and his unbelievable strength has been locked behind the concrete cell. His life has become completely unnatural where his work is to see usual things and to entertain the visitors by his huge structure.

लेस्ली नोरिस की कविता "ए टाइगर इन द ज़ू" एक बाघ के प्राकृतिक अस्तित्व तथा‌ वास्तविक में  कुछ बाघों को अपना जीवन कैसे व्यतीत करना पड़ता है,‌ इन‌ दोनों स्थितियों में अंतर के बारे में है। कवि एक स्थिति के बारे में बोलता है जहां एक पिंजरे के अंदर एक बाघ होता है और एक कोने से दूसरे कोने तक जाता है। उनके शरीर और पंजों में उनकी धारियां बहुत स्पष्ट रूप से देखी जा सकती हैं। बाघ को देखकर कवि को लगता है कि उसे उस जगह से गुजर रहे हिरण पर हमला करने के लिए लंबी घास के पीछे छिपे जंगल में होना चाहिए था। कवि यह भी सोचता है कि बाघ को ग्रामीणों को आतंकित करना चाहिए था, घरों के चारों ओर झपकी लेना चाहिए। लेकिन अनजाने में बाघ जेल में है और उसकी अविश्वसनीय ताकत कंक्रीट सेल के पीछे बंद हो गई है। उनका जीवन पूरी तरह से अप्राकृतिक हो गया है जहां उनका काम सामान्य चीजों को देखना और अपनी विशाल संरचना द्वारा आगंतुकों का मनोरंजन करना है।
