Northern Rainforest Rules
Do not yank a wolverines tail,
by Tare njTare
Hike with friends, stay on the trail.
Never chase bear cubs into heather,
Do not laugh at ruffled raven feathers.
Always wear your rubber boots,
Do not wipe with cow-parsnip shoots.
Never hurl rocks from up above,
Do not kiss the devil’s club.
Remember tides go out and down,
Laugh, have fun, come back to town.
