Wild animals are called wild for a reason – approach them at your peril. Alas, Jim thought he knew better.
The Bear Facts
While wandering in the woods one day,
Young Jim observed a bear at play.
Against a tree it scratched its back,
And looked too sleepy to attack –
Although a sign made danger clear:
BEWARE THE BEARS – DO NOT GO NEAR!
But reckless Jim did not think twice,
And heedless of that good advice,
Set out towards the grizzly bear,
Regardless of the danger there.
The details of what next befell
Are far too grim for me to tell,
But yes, the bear enjoyed a snack –
And foolish Jim did not come back.
