The Bears of Bodmin

Arthur Bodmin Plantagenet Goldsack-Sandford

There are bears galore

On Bodmin Moor
I counted them once

There were more than four
I counted them twice

And one was tall
I counted them thrice

And made sure

That I counted them all
I counted them a fourth time

And then put them in a rhyme
One was brown

(His mother’s ruin)

What can you do with an adolescent bruin

One was bi-polar

All ups and downs

And one was a bit grizzly

With tantrums and frowns

Then there was a tiny koala

Asleep by a door

I think there were others

I shall count them, once more.
