Papa Bear - Lincoln Park Zoo
I'm Papa bear. It's my birthday,
26 years been on the prowl.
Humans made a beehive display.
They try hard. I try not to growl.
Covered the hive with honey goo,
And some tasty munchies inside,
A big fake bee stuck on with glue,
Spooked me a bit till amply eyed.
I posed a bit for human sake.
Humans do love their gadgetry.
A few pictures I let them take,
Then turned that hive to history.
You can come take your pictures too.
I'm posed at the Lincoln Park Zoo.
