Berkoff on Bears & Barbarians

Section:

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

 

Actor, writer and producer Steven Berkoff is a titan of the stage and screen.

  1. 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.
