Flash!
A tiger roaming the streets
Has come to a satisfactory end
Not sure of how you would greet
a tiger, is he a friend?

Pursued and searched for, for a week
Afraid he'd attack on the prowl
Then people began to speak
Of the big cat who let out a growl

They tracked him down by the gossip
Took him under arrest
Told him they wanted no lip
And said it was for the best

Now he lives in a preserve
He's happy and I guess he's well fed
Nothing less than he really deserves
And the neighbors are all without dread

I heard about that on the news! I'm so glad that all turned out well in the end! you did a good job of story telling within your poem. I do believe that you could write well on any subject.
