Fuzzy Wuzzy

Fuzzy Wuzzy

A Poem by Brandon Wesley Mckay

A play on the back story of a beloved old children's poem. ( was it a poem, It might have been more of a limerick. )

Fuzzy Wuzzy 
was a bear.
Fuzzy Wuzzy 
had great hair.
He'd a thing 
for the honeys.
They thought
him quite funny.
And for him
Many went bare.
In college
He met a lady.
Tables turned
She drove him quite crazy
Went out
Spent his money
on a ring 
for love bunny,
This lady
He did want to marry. 
The engagement 
he planned was lovely.
Said yes,
They were one and onlys.
He spoke to her dad
Who thought him mad,
Talked to her sister,
said he'd make a great Mister
And surely 
They'd never be lonely.
For the wedding
He needed cash.
Else all of his plans
yet might crash.
He got a new job
He managed a store
No longer had time 
for the things he adored
Till his head 
he wanted to bash. 
Bears are not meant
For the office.
Well intentioned though,
He wouldn't stop it. 
        He slowly went bitter
lost all his fur,
His fiancee, she drifted
love no longer heard.
Till she left him,
No longer his poppet.
Fuzzy Wuzzy 
was a bear. 
Fuzzy Wuzzy 
had no hair. 
Alone with his shop,
now hating his life.
Untrue to himself,
       lost his future wife.
left sobbing
in his lonely lair.
