P.O.P.P. 2014

If you dare to go,
Where unbearable stenches lurk,
You’ll find horrific things
That are very berserk.

It’s the place where my sister
Was lost for a week,
The place where my mother
Took one sniff and felt weak.

There’s toilet paper,
Socks and who-knows-what galore!
I wonder what else
You might find on the floor?

If I were
to take one little peek,
I probably faint
But after screeching, “EEK!”

There go my brothers
Right to their lair,
I  ask what they’re doingh
And they’re cleaning up there.

It’s not fun to have someone lost
It’s like there’s a missing part of your heart
Now you can’t see them

It’s not fun to talk about
You can’t be sad all the time
Even though they are not here

When I found out I cried
I couldn’t say good bye
Every time I think of him
A tear comes to my eye

Seeing him gone is a nightmare
Since they are gone now
You can never forget about the memories you shared.

Strong, powerful
Running, hiding, watching
Strongest bears
Sleeping, growling, cuddling
White, cold
Polar bears
