A Bear Story

Rating: 4.3
There was a bear — his name was Jim,
An' children weren't askeered of him,
An' he lived in a cave, where he
Was confortubbul as could be,
An' in that cave, so my Pa said,
Jim always kept a stock of bread
An' honey, so that he could treat
The boys an' girls along his street.

An' all that Jim could say was 'Woof!'
An' give a grunt that went like 'Soof!'

Truly hilarious poem, full humor and so entertaining. I can imagine the poet as a Newspaper Reporter who was selling poems through his newspaper. Verse had always been part of Guest's writing, but he had more or less followed the workaday road of many newsmen for 10 years. In 1908, standing in the rain as the solitary mourner for one such journalist who had long since been forgotten and relegated to the newspaper's morgue,
