The Bear Necessities

Two weeks in to the poetry month and this morning we are to write a poem that plays with homographs, homophobes and homonyms. My poem is a little ridiculous to say the least but it is on prompt and I had fun writing it so who cares?!

Bug Bears

Can’t bare the pair of bears

who lie and then lie low

Upstairs they growl and stare

Some do their sums, some don’t

It grates to see their greatness

Dissolve into such waste

Their waists betray their straightness

Such feinting leaves me faint

You’ve guessed these guests are ghoulish

They’ve made a fair maid cry

These lines are somewhat foolish

I see this with my eyes! 👀
