hibernation revisited

I want to hibernate for eternity
but the earth's gravity
sings a teasing ditty

I want to hibernate for eternity
but life's nitty-gritty
spares no pity

I want to hibernate for eternity
but this piercing city
offers a diversity

I want to hibernate for eternity
but the bear, who appears to be smutty
sings me a ditty

I want to hibernate for eternity
dose or medicinal quantity
make me feel bitty

"I quit being a minute entity"

Oh my gosh this is so adorable!
The lyrical quality is very
appealing, as is the picture that
marries well with your words.

The repetition is like a poke in the ribs by a big bear's claws..keeping you up..though you try and try to sleep..wonderful piece..Jae

good rhyming.

Interesting style.

What a lot of fun this piece is. Not a lot of room on the bed for both you and the bear. He will have to hibernate alone I expect after the smutty ditty.

I want a smutty bear to sing me a ditty. The brain work here is amazing.

Madeleine Begun Kane said...

Ha! That's really good.

Identity is always an interesting issue. And I'd agree, the shift in desires here, bear with girl, is an interesting point of view for your poem here. Great idea!

Great poem, very interesting. I'm intrigued to know why the bear is smutty o_0
