Guarded doorways

If you wish not
to be tiger feed:

beware! Ignore the gods
and no Bengals starve.

Even demons can prosper
if they be wise:

another time, another place:
enter not in ignorance.

Dieties placed for protection
our doors safely guard:

Thou shall not pass--
no surviving heavenly assault.
