THE SHORT STORY
“And to think they all thought the lion was king…well not around here, and most definitely not tonight” Kami the Tiger thought to himself. He was in charge in this magical land, and that pleased him so. Even the clouds had gathered to pay him homage…yes he was king.
He looked around at all the animals in the swamp…the little creatures gathered around even as Peter the little boy who had saved them from the humans shined a light…he was content, though his mind raced…
He knew he would have to fight for this magical land to remain as such; but in this moment he was king and nothing would take that or this land from him…
The green trees whistled as if in agreement…Kami gave a resounding roar…the magical land, his beautiful kingdom was alive.
All hail Kami the Tiger, All hail Kami the king!
On quiet nights
When clouds overshadow earth
Darkness creeps in silently
Like a thief in the night
So magical and full of dream
With strange like fantasies
Lord Kami the tiger
Is ruler of this land
The clouds gather
To acknowledge his lordship
The trees with leaves green and alive
Swaying softly to pay homage
Little creatures seen only with inner eyes
Stand in silent awe and respect
Wishes and fantasies blazing in their eyes
Lord Kami stands strong in his stride
Another nightly counsel
Is about to take place
I little boy
Dreamer stand as knight
Guarding this land with a light
And my man like might…
Even if only in my sleepy dreams
