THE RUSSIAN BEAR
News Item: The Ukraine is having elections today. The eastern part is boycotting
them and will hold their own elections next Sunday.
Here I was in quiet hibernation and they started to steal parts of my forest.
So what did you do?
First, I saved my Crimean honey pot. Yum! It was easy. The bees love me and
wanted to be with me.
Well, it was a fight for my relatives in the east. They didn't give up despite the force
used against them. Of course, I helped but quietly. We have saved the best berry
What will you do next?
I am quite happy with the way things turned out. They can keep the scrub. Wasn't
much use anyway and it owes me for keeping it warm and habitable in winter.
Is there a lesson in all of this?
Well, it shows you. The Russian bear is a match for all those critters from the west.
Who do you mean?
Oh, the eagle, the bulldog that had its heyday a century ago, the little French poodle,
the schnauzer running around after its own tail once causing havoc in our world when
it behaved like a rottweiler.
You know the problem lies with their handlers. They are out of control ...
Not out of control, more like being controlled ...
