239. Polar Depress.

We all know the feeling!
This photo first appeared on Bearnaked's Bear page.


I looked in the water and saw my reflection!
I wish I had looked in another  direction!
I know I'm not young, there are wrinkles, unbidden,
But luckily, under my fur, they're quite hidden.
I knew I was greying, but oh what a fright!
When I looked in my 'mirror' I saw I'd turned WHITE!

I was outraged by your treatment of the polar bear that appeared to be struggling to survive, and perhaps didn't, caught in an oil slick!
