Artistic representation of cave with water crashing on waves

The Saga

We are forced to live with a 300 pound tiger; its name is power.

We can teach the tiger about fairness, but it is going to do, pretty much, whatever it wants.

We don’t want to kill it, but it wants to kill us.

We can either cage the tiger, or live in fear of the tiger.

To cage the tiger is very hard, but is often done, but does not protect against vengeance should the now smarter tiger escape.

The tiger here represents many tigers of all sizes and appetites.

To have one caged is relief but only for a moment as its captor then becomes the new tiger.
