Teddy Bears

Me and my brother had teddy bears
Both were shorn and bald of hairs
The tale to you I will describe
It’s not one that fills me with pride

My dad had a pair of manual hair clippers
Which he kept hid from us nippers
But I’d found them once before
The goldfish found upon the floor

I had tried to give his fin a trim
After which on one side he did swim
The teddy bears were next in line
All their golden hair so soft and fine

I took the clippers to our room
I thought it time they had a groom
Sat down clippers at the ready
Picked up first my brothers teddy

Shaved them bald as they could be
My brother was not pleased with me
As I sat there like the barber of Seville
I was glad a look could not kill

I don’t  know what happened to the clippers
With the rubber handle grippers
Or the lovely teddy bears
Who ended up as teddy bares

    Ending up with no teddy hairs is such an awful future to look forward to! Funny you would conjure up this memory from childhood; it sure was funny.
