Once
After a hard day’s forage
Two bears sat together in silence
On a beautiful vista
Watching the sun go down
And feeling deeply grateful
For life

Though, after a while
A thought provoking conversation began
Which turned to the topic of
Fame

The one bear said,
“Did you hear about Rustam
He has become famous
And travels from city to city
In a golden cage

He performs to hundreds of people
Who laugh and applaud
His carnival
Stunts”

The other bear thought for
A few seconds

Then started
Weeping.
