City folk, leave behind

That old familiar scene!

Return to unspoiled nature!

Break from tired routine!

Hike into the forest,

A good friend at your side.

Raise your tent, build a fire.

Let senses come alive.

Hear the jaunty songbirds

Trill among the leaves.

Hear the drone of insects.

Feel cleansing in the breeze.

But this you must remember,

Nature too is cruel.

In wilderness or Gotham

Cunning is the rule.

So keep your rifle handy.

Stay awake at night.

A grizzly may be stalking you.

You could die before first light!
