Poetry Pantry 146: 纸老虎

(paper tiger) 

there is 
much luxury 
     in gaming legacy, 
claiming thrones; 

when throngs 
lend eyes 
     to your ascension
cling to the 

staff of redemption, 
beneath which 
     luxury is 

no match.

  1. You didn't wait for Tiger to be headlines on Monday... you put him right out there tonight!!!

  2. I stayed glued to my tv screen yesterday ... loved the fantastic finish, rooting for the Aussie all the way!
