Bears

There once lived a grumpy old bear
who had silver and very coarse hair.
As the bear had grown bigger
they all called him a nigger
and this name he was destined to wear.

When he met a young she-bear, he said
I am thrilled with the shape of your head.
He was plain ithyphallic
and a brachycephalic
would be suitable as a biped.

One more question concerning a bear.
It is something I'm eager to share.
Do they shit in the woods
do they leave their dropped goods
are they shaped like a sausage or pear?

As you know, the small wombat (a bear)
lays his droppings, some cubed and some square,
on the top of his home
where it forms a nice dome
but the wombat has beautiful hair.

And in closing, Karl Ernest von Baer,
embryologist, not ordinaire.
had a bear's scruffy beard
(and he did look quite weird)
that's the data I wanted to share.

As one who is fond of bears - Edward (Winnie the Pooh) Bear, Paddington Bear (from darkest Peru) and even old Humphrey bear (from seventies children's television) I thoroughly enjoyed your poem with limerick-like flow and its fascinating data. Always a pleasure to find one of yours. love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
