With the sound of soft strides
He passes his days as a panther
In a Parisian garden -
Caged and subdued.
Ashamed of his god-given claws
And their potential
He pleads to God
Take these claw from me!
But God is silent
And he feels them still
He feels them every day:
Terrible and twitching and full of potential
So he paces his mind and soul-numbing circles.
Again and again and again:
He will answer his own prayer.
