Seeking shelter built out of ignorance.

And the glass house is a great metaphor to show how stupid some people can be. It's like the three little pigs trying to find shelter in a straw house. People who poke an bears, their ignorance will get them killed some day. Lol, when the bear decides to throw the stone back, just like the big bad wolf, the house will come crashing down.

Yes, I wrote this with a particular person in mind. I try to keep those thoughts at bay now ...
Don't awake the beast, don't let the genie out of the bottle. But what the heck, you might get three wishes...lol

Some of us can't help but stir the pot or poke at sleeping bears but we must always be aware that there are consequences when we don't think things through when we lash out in the moment. Some are drawn to these scenarios unable to stop themselves from waking the bear that sleeps so peacefully. This poem makes you think about agendas and motivations.

I dont poke bears....had a scary experience in Yosemite National Park as a child. Bad year for bears...a few attacks. My dad and I were in a double sleeping bag and woke to the sound of loud snuffling. Then felt something yank the bottom corner of the bag. I almost freaking peed my pants. My dad put his hand on my mouth so I wouldnt scream. The bear tugged twice more then slowly moved away. And we heard someone yelling from another campsite. Then all hell broke loose...people in complete panic. The park rangers showed up but the bear slipped away safe and sound. Lol....

Yeah it's a tough one to break, especially when you are hard headed.
Yes, they do... We call these people "fools"...
