On her way home through a deep dark wood, after studying rhyme and meter, what do you suppose should greet her but a big burly black bear.
"You are in my woods," said the bear, "and I don't know if I should eat you or lick you."
Hands behind her back, the girl replied, "You are a very burly bear, and I don't know if I should teach you or trick you."
The bear eyed her hidden hands and pointed out that "you could be holding a pistol or a picnic basket, a treat for us or a blunderbuss."
The girl brought out her hands and the bear's eyes grew wide, his face funny.
Then the bear said, "Oh, honey..."
A bit of fun for Thursday's Six Sentence Link-Up. The required word was "meter." A bit out of my métier, I must say. ;-)
