Shorter fiction: Borin was here

Borin quickly wrote this poem on a standing stone:
“Borin was here,
he now is o’erthere
–>”
The brown predator that came a minute later could not read,
a slight, but deadly oversight in Borin’s perfect plan.
In his final moments Borin could not stop this rhyme from popping up:
“Borin was here,
how appropriate the past tense now is, bear”
