Sometimes The Bear Eats You

In life an endless winning streak
is the high we all seek
We all want to bask in the glow of an undefeated season
and to smile with joy for that reason
Sadly, the weather will change
and things will rearrange
So, when your Karma credit card statement reads payment past due
remember sometime you eat the bear and sometimes he eats you
