Mary Also Had a Bear

Mary Also Had a Bear

A Chapter by Dave Brown



Mary also had a sweet pet bear

Not at all ferocious

But the sweet bear’s breath

Was absolutely atrocious


She bought an electric tooth brush

To clean his horrid teeth

Designed to scrub and scrub

The hidden germs beneath


But one tooth had to come out

And Mary took him to the Vet

But the cost of tooth removal

Was something she’d regret


She had to mortgage her house

And stop driving her new car

Which all went up in smoke

When he ate a nuther chocolate bar


Now Mary has no money left

Vet bill’s have left them on the streets

And a flat broke Mary no longer

Gives a damn about what the thing eats

I sense some symbolism here. But damned if I can find it! Your mind works in mysterious ways, hooking Mary up with a bear which drives her destitute due to rotten teeth. Reading this makes me damn glad I managed to stoop down low enuf to cut my toenails the other day so I don't have to invite some grizzly toe-trimmer into my humble abode. Your imagination being outside the playing field is a marvel that still boggles my mind regularly (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

sorry dave:/ LOL
I'm sure Bernie Sanders says he could have fixed all of this. Also, did Mary ever tell her little lamb about this episode from her past? Could be traumatic for the creature. I mean, who wants a halitotic bear for a brother?
