Bear Bunny Love

Listen to Moe's poem ... read by Carlos Rondon
Isn't it funny how a bear and a bunny can find themselves in love?
This kind of affection and furry connection is the result of a bolt from above.
Know that the rabbit is not in the habit of cavorting with a known carnivore.
You’d think that a hare that falls for a bear would worry about what is in store.
Though bears do like berries and even ripe cherries, they are not vegan per se.
If offered a coney or cheese and baloney, the answer would probably be “Yeah”!”
Will the bear really settle to nibble on kibble and forget its meat hungry tooth?
Will the bunny decide to go along for the ride, and not tell his buddies the truth?
There could be a riot when the bear’s bunny diet, is revealed at the nuptial feast.
Bunnies will scatter and here speed will matter when running from this bridal beast!
While saying their vows- bears dreaming of cows, something bunny would never abide.
If I were that bunny with a bear for a honey, I think I would kiss her and hide.
