The Thief and the Bear

A ghostly figure pokes a bear
That had been quietly resting
The massive creature stumbles out
From the cave where it was nesting

A stealthy villain held the stick
Which drew out the bear from slumber
It roars and rears, runs and rumbles
At men close by cutting lumber

With axes tossed and curses hurled
The work is stacked but left behind
Their piles of wood lie on the ground
For the foul fiend to load and bind

As ill-gotten gain is gathered
The bear roams back home to its cave
The would-be thief of wood gives shout
But he is dragged into his grave
