Paid in full

Every time we make some honey
Those bloody bears have got no money
Mummy Bear comes on her own
“Can I have a jar on loan?”
Daddy Bear is cadging too
“If we had some we’d share with you”
Baby Bear is much more more cunning
He brings Goldilocks, so stunning
She knows how the game is played
Appreciates the treat we’ve made
She brings flowers by the jar
Full of nectar? yes they are!
They also give us pollen grains
We use to treat our aches and pains
Goldilocks has won us over
Gets two jars of finest “Clover”
Baby Bear is happier yet
Now Goldilocks has paid her debt!
