A bobcat and bear with some berries to share
Went picknicking down by the river
Said she to her buddy, "The bank is all muddy,
And the grass is reduced to a sliver."
Their food packed away, they did briefly delay
To seek counsel from Candy the crawfish
But their shy, bug-eyed bud in her tunnel of mud
Remained silent, surly, and standoffish
So onward they trod, and they soon spotted Todd,
An old trout who imparted a notion
Said old Todd the Trout, "I hear great things about
Having picnics alongside the ocean."
They arrived at the shore and, as they had before,
They deployed their big blanket and basket
But they both got some sand in the pads of their hands
Which hurt so much they just couldn't mask it
"This just isn't fair!" said old Bobo the Bear
"I agree," was the answer from Charlotte,
"I just want to eat without pain in my feet--
OW! My foot!" for she just then ensnarled it
There followed a jab then from Coco the Crab
Whom she'd just rendered homeless while speaking
For she'd stepped in his hole, which had taken a toll
And the roof was now constantly leaking
Came Coco's decree: "I can easily see
Why at Candy's place you could not spot her,
For you two stomp around and disfigure the ground!
At least old Todd can stay in the water!"
The friends felt ashamed and they took all the blame
But Coco's abode they could not save
Sadly eyeing the ruins, Bobo was quickly clued in
Said he, "You can stay in my cave!"
And so it was then that in a great bear den
Charlotte, Coco, and Bobo shared berries
Deep into the night lasted their great delight
And a sad day was this way made merry.
