Steven Berkoff responds to an article in ‘The Times’ featuring an image of a sub-human barbarian with a polar bear he’d slayed
Yesterday, after I saw a disgusting picture in The Times, I thought I’d write this:
Poem for a Big Bear
In The Times today I saw a bear
A great, big, beautiful polar bear
Spread out upon on the Arctic snow
Its great snout resting on an icy mound,
Its giant paws clawing the frozen ground
Its eyes half open but seeing nought
Death hath claimed this valiant beast
That trod the ice caps, plunged the seas
Pursued its prey, fed its cubs
Its life in a simple but harsh terrain
Magnificent and solitary soul,
You great big beautiful polar bear
Now lay lifeless, useless meat
But sharing this picture, just above its corpse
A human grinning beast, so ugly, so hideous
Wearing a yellow grin of triumph
That he the human beast hath slain
This glorious Arctic treasure
His bloated face was swollen with pride
As he posed victorious over the slaughtered hide
Clutching his arrows he felt so good, this filthy
Ugly human beast, how can you smile
You gutless fraud? How can you grin
When you have robbed the earth
Of one more divine element
One day a plague will hunt you down
Will pursue you till the ends of the earth
No escape for you and yours and it will fire
An arrow in your guts, and you will die a painful death
Gasping, rasping in your stinking bed.
Begging for just a little breath
No one will ever mourn your death

Well written Steven,these people should be culled,not the animals,they are arrogant SCUM!
This poem says it all. Despicable scum.
What a crying pity that animal couldn’t have got to him before he got his arrow from his quiver. Probably shot this magnificent beast in the back, like the fucking coward he is.
