Bartholomew And Clare



Gather round all you little kiddies Got a story I'd like to share Bout a tiny mouse named Bartholomew And a hulking big bear called Clare! Now Clare wasn't the least bit happy That his name sounded quite a bit girly Had a wee mousey friend Bartholomew Who's name sounded strong and burly! So hulking big Clare the unhappy bear Asked his mousy friend Bartholomew If he'd be so kind and wouldn't mind Switching names, that'd be so cool! Bartholomew said he wanted some time To check with dear Cynthia his friend About this idea of switching names On her opinion he would depend! Cynthia said, “If you want my opinion Your name doesn't sound like a bear But if Clare wants the name Bartholomew We're still friends but now you'll be Clare!” A name doesn't change the person you are You'll be the same friend in the end So forever after Mr. Bartholomew Bear And wee mousey Clare stayed friends! © Jack Ellison 2013

    Dragon says your story telling just keeps getting better... and better... No Dragon...I don't think he wants to write stories about you... You can try but I don't think he'll fall for buttering him up... I know... I've been slow a writting lately... Yes, you can ask...But if he says no. You're not allowed to blow fire and smoke his way... Yes, he's farther away than across the lake... A lot further north... No, the map is smaller than the distance. Poof!... Awww I liked that map! Silly Dragon
