Beware the Bearhugger

Beware the Bearhugger

 

By Elton Camp



Whether a relative or acquaintance matters not

This man shows up and wants what you’ve got

“Hello, my friend, on visiting you I’ve got behind

But here of late, I’ve had you so often on my mind



He wraps his arm around your shoulder for a hug

And to escape his unwanted grasp you try to shrug

For you know that, before the bearhugger is gone

He’s planning to try his best to use you as his pawn



“So tell me all about your beautiful wife & chil’en.

I hear that your’re doing well and find that thrillin.’”

You know about those things he cares not a speck

To his advantage, your finances he intends to wreck



And as soon as the flattery he thinks likely did work,

There comes the business proposal from the big jerk

“I’ve found a way to make money as never seen before

Because we’re pals, will let you in on the ground floor.”



And then he gradually reveals to you all of the rest

All you need is ten thousand dollars you can invest

With financial loss you most certainly aren’t messing

Since, he says, it’s an operation that God is blessing



But all credibility the obnoxious bearhugger lacks

You know well that the other hand does hold an axe

So say your’re not interested and don’t explain why

To act incredulous at your stupidity don’t let him try
