poems for children

Bears don’t sit on chairs – a poem for Megsy on her birthday

Bears don’t sit on chairs,

You see their bottoms are too hairy

And they’re really very heavy

So they don’t find perching easy.

When they come in from the woods

With their paws all wet with honey –

A chair can get quite sticky

And their mothers do get fussy

Because it makes the cushions smelly.

So when they watch the telly

They’re made to sit upon the floor

On a rug

Which is difficult to break

Unlike the chair

And they’re not allowed a drink

Because a spill could cause a stink

Which again their mums don’t like – I think..

Bears don’t sit on chairs.
