1410 – Bedroom Bear

Bedroom Bear
The worst part: the bear is probably creasing those comic book pages.

Was That a Bear?

I used to be afraid a bear
Would find a way to creep
into my room and scare me there
while I was fast asleep.

How would the bear end up in there?
How could it get so lost?
And why despair this thing so rare?
But still, I turned and tossed…

I was prepared for bears that scared.
I checked beneath my bed.
I thought perhaps some booby traps
could help me rest my head.

But every night, alone in fright,
I hardly slept a wink.
The scary sight of bearish might
was drawing near, I’d think.

There never could be bears in there.
Oh what a strange concern.
What’s that? I think I hear them slink…
I guess I’ll never learn.
