There once was an old man we called Harry
That felt all animals were quite scary
When the black bear stood tall
He did not move at all
Cause the bear was chasing his friend Larry
When she found out she would be working late
She asked if he could pick her up at eight
Drew looks askance
When he said, "It'll be hard to bear the wait!"
When Putin is telling the truth
The frogs queue up at the Kissing Booth
But the Russian Bear
Growls, "You should take care!
Vlad squirts cyanide from his tooth!"
'Tis tax time again much to my chagrin!
I await that like a kick on the shin.
Again they'll drain me dry
It just wants to make me cry!
Guess I'll just have to bear it and grin!

Fuzzy Wuzzy waza fuzzy wuzzy bear
Looked like a fuzz ball he had so much hair
But in all that fuzz
Lived a heart of pure luv
The sweetest damn fuzz ball I do declare

It's a picture of Lucas and me.
We're cuties you have to agree.
The love that we share
with our Mom "Randa Bear",
is in the smile on my face that you see.

Yogi Bear was named after this famous New York Yankee
Twas Yogi Berra, hearing him speak you never be cranky
A real fun loving soul
With a heart of pure gold
His goofy wit had his teammates forever needing a hanky

What will their eternity win?
Greed, as a vice makes some men grin.
Money is their God.
Poor folks bear guffawed.
Then games bring a different kingpin!

A cuddly toy Mr Edward Bear
a boy's comfort joy and fresh air,
lost his ear one stormy night
the dog jumped in to bed in fright,
the button on his neck gone where?

There once existed a fierce bear
Nothing with anybody would he share
Then one day he cried
Because friends he denied
Then he vowed to always play fair
I wish that I was a koala bear
Napping in eucalyptus-scented air
In trees, safe from attack
No dingoes get to snack
Oh, to have my avatar's cuteness flair!
Midnight oil was burnt,
Entire syllabus well learnt,
In exam hall I went blank,
Looked around as a prank,
My friends had to bear the brunt!

A young girl from Old River Front
Got so hungry she went on a hunt
But got more than she care
When encountered a bear
So she ran, cuz that was too much to confr'nt!

THE NEW SCHOOL NEW PALS
A long time ago in the land of ice and snow
Played out such an extraordinary loving scenario
A white rhino and brown bear
Made love on a chair
Result was a snow white polar bear, wouldn't you know

Up from the depths of the sea,
came a mermaid who needed to pee.
She had bright green hair
and was as fat as a bear,
but alas, was allergic to bees.
Joe the lightning bear
Put on his nike air.
Ran he did, as fast he can,
Through the forest, of his ancestry land.
Frantic Joe didn't know where to go,
It's not his fault he didn't know.
The polar bear so they say
Is renowned for being gay
After salmon and stuff
Wants to huff and puff
For gawds sake don't get in the way

This girl I've met so lively and sweet
She looked at my eyes and made me sweat
All night I dream of her,
this burden - that I bear
makes me mad that pushed me to eating
I never bear grudges, and I never bear ill,
For these unwanted feelings, can easily spill,
Out of control and seep into our souls,
Destroy our long term dreams and goals,
If we lean towards this, wish it away with will.
Ah, who dares to call him a big bear,
when he eats a chocolate eclair?
He drops it on his red shoes,
to hear the pigeon's coos...
then smears it all over his brown hair.
I laugh at your joke that wasn't funny
Reminds me of pooh the bear with honey
Smirking at me
Making me free
You make my days so very sunny
Inspired by Seren Roberts
the polar bear is unaware the reason
why its hunting ground is de-freezing
unlike the human race
it sadly cannot outpace
climate change, warmer is each season.
I, Word Warrior, having the yen
for writing, then retired to my den.
A grumpy old bear
had wandered in there,
but I fended him off with my pen!
For the 'Unsheath Your Sword' Poetry Contest of John Lawless
One day, a wolf sat,
By a babbling brook,
Awaiting a tasty snack.
He spotted a beaver,
His teeth, they cleaved her
Then by hungry bear, he was attacked;
Now he’s in Heaven without his pack.
