Why Bears Don’t Write Poetry
First of all, bears sleep up to six months,
probably with no notebook by their bed.
If they wrote anything, that might be
long grocery lists of wishful thinking.
No doubt some bears dream in menus,
you’d guess from restaurants in states
known for raising beef cattle—or for
traditional bears, buffalo-ranch states.
Besides, bears are staunch omnivores,
at home as carnivores or herbivores.
