Double Trouble

I don’t think I believe you Mum, I haven’t seen it move.
There cannot be a tree curled up inside

Just watch it dear and never make a sound

I know you said it’s in there but I really think that you’ve
Been told a tale by somebody who lied

I saw mine twitch!“, “now not a sound you’ll frighten it away,
You have to lie here quietly with me

But Mum it’s very boring and I want to go and play
Not lie with you just waiting for a tree

Do as I say and lie down on the ground!

These bears you see are just like us, their children make a dreadful fuss.
But mother bears work hard so they, prefer to sleep the day away!
