BEAR THIS IN MIND for gun-ku contest


                    BEAR THIS IN MIND

              If you're walking in the wood
              And your dog's not looking good
              With a bear claw in his eye
               or flying through the summer sky.

              Hope you've packed the stuff you need
              Not just sleeping pills or speed
              But some gear that saves your life
              Like a sharpened hunting knife

              Whistles don't impress a bear
              His territory ‘s not to share
              If you want his rapt attention
              Walther's a keen intervention
