Don’t Feed The Bears (limerick)

Updated on November 3, 2013

Though warning signs were everywhere

My brother would still feed the bear

As home we did go

I let brother know

His left arm was no longer there

      Back home, there was this one woman who always fed a bear with a crippled paw. I'll be darned it he didn't go to everyone else's house looking for handouts, too.

      Bears can get overly affectionate.

      Did you use the photo as a limerick prompt? It's fun to see the direction your creative imagination takes you, and there's additional fun reading the comments in rhymes and puns that your limericks attract. I get to smile more than once per limerick!

      A good thing is that he still has one arm left, so he can feed bears again.

      Don’t Feed The Bears Wow! Definitely not a good idea to feed bears, interesting thought here.
