TashaNoble - Teddy Bears

These fluffy, furry comforters

Are not just for the tiny.

Who can resist their fuzzy ears;

their eyes so round and shiny?


They listen to our tales of woe

And never will reject us,

Or judge us for our faults.  It seems

Our teddy bears protect us.


When flesh and blood assault our souls

With harsh words or indifference

These little woolly entities

Can make a world of difference.


But can they utter kindly words

Or soothe our brows, console us?

They can't return the loving glance

Their eyes are empty, soulless.


So teddies, yes, you have your place

I'd never vote to ban you.

But give me people any day;

You teddies can't speak, can you?

The End
