The Bears Are Back



The bears are back.

Where?

O somewhere – not here.
There are parts of Ohio
where the bears go.

Where did they come from?

Perhaps a Ranger took a bear cub
from a dead mother,
brought it to a place
where a bear could grow,
here in Ohio.

There are more now.

How?

Maybe a few bears wandered
into the State,
maybe they crossed the Ohio river
over there
you know south of here.

Wow bears in Ohio.
Yea I heard it on the radio.

I heard there are wolves
roaming the empty shopping Malls.

Where?

Over there,
where we lost hope.

No kidding?
What kind of wolves?

The ones at your door.

Yea, we had them before.

Well there back
most everywhere.

I guess they followed the bears.
