Taxidermied Bear

February 1, 2009

Mr Polar Bear,
Are you happy to be holding
a basket full
of plastic chrysanthemums?

Mr Polar Bear,
are you happy to be standing
in a recess, on the floorboards
of a stately home.

Mr Polar Bear –
from the top of the food chain
to the bottom of the stairs –
did you think you’d end up like this?

If you were mine I’d take you home
I’d bury you in the ice.
