The Lord of Bears - Prose of Ramadhan Part 29

29. A bear of a man II
The problem about being a bear
Is that we appear big,
With lots of fat and fur
To keep us warm.

But they offer absolutely
No protection against
Barbed words,
And little security against

Nowadays, me and my kind
Are inclined to tears
More than anger,
And when pressed,
I would away to the mountain,
Seeking his company,
The Lord of Bears,
Beseeching him,
Not to leave me
Sad and lonely.
