Beware the Bear

sitting on the hearth,
      looking like a toy,

   bears are nothing
to be trifled with.

      always so hungry,
   amazing appetites
fill up a hungry bear.

our tree was full
      of hungry bears

   they lept or fell
down to the cold,
      dark hearth.

safer there than 
   christmas trees

for some, it wasn't 
      very far to fall.

the stories that these
   bears could tell,

      is something we
can't taste or smell

it is a game that
      has no prize
and we won't play,

we won't play ball,
      we say we one 
and say we all.
