The Bear

i saw a bear
not just any ordinary bear
a bear wearing polka dotted underwear
he was so suprised when i arrived
he had a heart attack and the poor thing died

I absolutely loved this poem. It is so funny. It reminds me so much of some of the poems written by a poet named Edward Lear. Looking forward to more poetry from you.
I think this shows a nice transition from the simple rhyming of young child's poetry to concerns about metre and cadence. Sounds like you will follow in your grandmother's footsteps! Super!
This is a very funny poem. Well done!
Typical nature trail. Warns humans about bears, not vice versa. So narrow minded.
