the grizzlies den

heading out on a sunday ramble
we stop for gas
outside what was formerly known as
the triangle road cafe
the new sign reads:
the grizzlies den
no apostrophe
i cannot speak for the menu
but i find the new name distasteful
when was the last time
there was a grizzly in these parts?
i have dreamt of bears
and hold some hope
that somewhere
secreted away deep in the mountains
far from man's arrogant reach
they may still roam
