The speaker doubts the existance of God. He speaks of a tiger, a fearful creature, and then goes on to symbolize
the evil in the world. He speaks of how in a world full of such hatred, wouldn't God, as the creator, be able to stop
everything. At the end, he asks the question, "did he who make the lamb, make thee?" By this, he means, did the
same being that created good, create evil?
