The Polar Bear

The huge white powerful
Polar Bear
Roams arctic regions
Without care
Subsists on fish
                    What else?
                           Who knows?
It's rumored
It loves
Eskimos

And when it urgently yearns for sweets
*Eskimo pies make perfect treats



*Eskimo pies - the chocolate covered ice cream bar.

    Jon this is a cute and clever write. Makes the reader chuckle and smile. AAAWW those poor eskimos. Being baked in a pie. Well at least they wont be cold anymore. LOL thanks for understanding what I was saying in my Yesterday poem. Hugs

    hahaha Oh my goodness. Hilarious stuff. Eskimo pies. I am picturing the eskimos themselves inside a big pie. I've been so busy seeing your older stuff, I have neglected the new poems. I had such fun seeing these three. Now I better hurry off here and make dinner.

    LOL, what inspired the last two lines was a gary Larson cartoon. Two polar bears are huddled over an Igloo. The top of the Igloo is missing and the caption on the cartoon reads. "Hey, I just love these things. Crunchy on the outside with a soft chewy center. It's one of my favorite cartoons. But I have a very sick sense of humor
