Truth

by James Morehead

plastic tigers
                     with synthetic roars
hollow pretenders
smooth surface and masks
hiding
afraid someone might look behind
the masks and make-up
                                       frail armour
and see
that not all tigers are real tigers
that some are plastic
                                  weak
                                           and lifeless
