if you go down to the woods

If you go down to the woods

and look really, really, closely
you can see the leaves have veins
some even have tiny hairs

              donettles sting, he said morosely
              dothe softest grass grazes and stains
              doDaddy says beware, beware

but animals are friends, well mostly,
a bear on TV, I saw take pains
lifting a child from its lair

              doBears, Mum says, are ghastly
              doteeth and claws and evil brains
              domost creatures shouldn’t there

so many are now a ghostly
reminder of what man has slain
or ignored, or did not care

              dodo you sense something unholy
              doa horrid smell like a blocked drain
              dooh no! it's a bear, a bear

It’s my bear, he’s so cuddly
I love him and he feels the same
together we're a perfect pair
