"The Tyger" was a poem.
After Tommy looked into the Metebelis crystal and realised he could now read much better, he went to get more books from the meditation centre's library. There he found a book of poetry which included The Tyger, and proceeded to read the opening verse aloud:
- Tyger Tyger, burning bright,
- In the forests of the night;
- What immortal hand or eye,
- Could frame thy fearful symmetry?
