Blake's Tiger Revisited

tiger

Tiger, tiger, dying out
Shrinking forests no redoubt
Tell the world to stop and see
Its game, its dismal tyranny

In what cruel economy
Agriculture cuts the tree?
Starving our elusive cat
Bulldozing its habitat?

In what fell society
Rising warmness swells the sea?
Drowns the mangroves, floods the land
Whose the profit, whose the hand?
