Mean peculiarity

With his choice of charity,
But his popularity

An Ode to shows of my childhood
A bear and his best friend, mouse.
The both lived in a big blue house.
This girl is completely unstoppable.
She could do almost anything possible.
Three friends with the same name, just different spelling.
To make money for jawbreakers, rip-offs they were selling.

And on his face we would find much disgust;
Should see hair;
Looked like a bear;
His character had been full of a lot of crust.

If the armchair is positioned right
Sometimes if we are careful,

And never tell anyone what we have...Read More

While sexual harassment has found a
