Dirty table, high chair, hungry bear
A mother eats her young,
doesn’t anybody care?
You don’t know my reason,
It’s not the right way, not the right season.
She looked at me with an irreverent glare,
Which made me wanna turn around, disappear, and get the hell outta there.
You do this, I do that, it’s even Steven said the bear,
It’s easy to judge as you sit there unaware in your armchair.
I wanted to be leaving
But I held my ground, and heard her out.
Though I wasn’t agreeing
it did help to ease my uneven breathing
The worlds not black and gray
You can’t trust Mother Nature, tooth decay, or a tree that doesn’t topple over as its roots are cut away.
I suppose we are what tortoise is to the hare,
too far behind, left in the dust, don’t treat things fair.
Clean table, dinner chair, empty bear.
