Spring moon bear drives the dogs nuts tonight
wrecking birdfeeders at neighboring
house without hounds. Talk of the town,
"that bear!" Of course, there are many bears.
Some folks are saying government should
"Do something!" Do what? Kill off the bruin?
Drive one more species into ruin?
Chemical lawns replace miles of wood
to appease resurgent endless growth scares.
Do we need more houses up and down
the valley? More bulldozers laboring,
but no black bear lumbering through the night?
Stop suburban blight and unchecked bloat.
I say we enfranchise bears. Let them vote!
