1537 – Take Out Dinner

Take Out Dinner
I guess technically, this is both take out and delivery.

The Bears Nearby

I know that bears, they follow me
and hide in places I can’t see,
but I can feel their leering stares.
They’re everywhere, those fearsome bears.

I don’t know what they want from me;
tormenting, taunting, haunting me,
and though I never hear or see,
I know they’re near, and watching me.

It isn’t even safe inside.
I’m sure they’ve found a place to hide
behind those plants, behind those shelves
where clever bears conceal themselves.

I wish that they would leave me be
and end this loathsome misery.
They hide and seek all night and day.
Oh, why did I agree to play?
