Bars And Bears
by ©Richard Budig 1999

We’ve all taunted the beast
Poked at it through the bars
And returned its smoky glare
When it wheeled to face us
And sensing victory over caged fury
Tossed in the last of our ice cream
And watched hunger replace instinct
And then home with mommy
Crunching jelly beans and lifesavers
And then off to bed in jammies with feet
Where we drift low and lower still
Until we almost slip away
Until suddenly from our pillow
Comes a low and throated growl
And now it is we who wheel
To face the uncaged fang and fury
That roots just outside our windows
That lingers beneath our beds
That slobbers through our closets
Not to mention the inside of our heads
