The Stuffed Bear

The Stuffed Bear

A Poem by Alani
"

A series of limericks

"
A stuffed bear lying on my bed
a bad thing it was said
for being old
and no stories told
I had to give it to Fred

--------------------------------------------------------

There was a young bear from Havanah
who fell in love with another
but being stuffed
thought he'd been bluffed
and had to forget about her

--------------------------------------------------------

A package "with love" it was sent
believed it came from a gent.
The stuffed bear inside
went for the wrong ride
for me it wasn't meant

-------------------------------------------------------

A stuffed bear on the table
to sing he thought he was able
but with no voice
he had no choice 
and had to stick to fable

I get the feeling you have somehow incorporated some of your real life in this, if so it is a clever interweave.
