Annual Grizzly Bear Ball

A menagerie of puppies
were way too polite
They knocked on the door
With nearly no delight.

Can we use your driveway
For our annual grizzly bear dance?
I said, “Most surely”.
My husband said “Not a chance”.

The menagerie of puppies
gave me a card, and took off
They gave up so easily!
My husband did scoff.

They’ll be back on Tuesday,
Ahead of the snow
I assured him,
 for I truly did know.

The annual grizzly bear dance is so fun!
There are contests, 
and challenges 
Where we dance in the sun

They growl and they snarl
And bring a Mariachi band
A menagerie of puppies
Having much fun as they can!

Yes, we do this too, but with hamsters. And ours is called “The Badger Ball”. Loved being in your world with this poem Caren!

Thank you Nina. You can be in my world every single day; get your petootsie to Kansas City. Bring the boys and the husband. We have a play yard in the back of our house.
