Fire by David Moala (Highly Commended)

Fire is a furious tiger
Ferocious and dangerous.
He sneaks through the forest as he must
With his blazing red coat and his enormous jaws,
Hour after hour he roars.

Snapping and snarling against the trees
Leaving behind nothing but skeletons
The ferocious fire-tiger growls.
He travels through the distance
Continuing what he started
Slowly and slowly his anger vanishes
Forcing him to drift into a deep sleep,
Leaving the forest
But leaving behind the lurking danger of the fire-tiger.
