The Brown Bear

The life of a wild animal is very brief

Especially when it suffers the indignity

Of being stuffed and posed and parked

In artificially dramatic situations

Or posed under conditions

Unrelated to its wild habitat

Like the stuffed Brown Bear

With his ferocious mouth

Stretched wide in fearsome form

Staged menacingly wearing a Santa Claus hat

At the company Christmas celebration

This gruesome comedy used as a prop

To support the winking bravery

Of the inebriated guests
