Really Awfully Topsy-turvy Rhyme


(Read on at your own peril of wild puns;  each pair’ll savage your mental stability.)

A bear is not bare but is covered in hair;
While beers ale and arty aren’t Bruin; [1]

Beer bearBear and honey

When bears go out badgering one might declare
It might bee the honey[2] they drew in?

June-bugs in dune buggies may well bug in May,
Though mayflies may fly in November,
But if they’re due not[3] to, at walks they will stay –
D’you know,[4] flight they may not remember?

Dog-roses and catkins aren’t fighting at all,
And the field mice in houses do dwell,
While fruit-flies on veggies voraciously fall,
Green bloodhounds those roses now smell?

Adore mouse[5] that’s entering Windows these days,
And the peacocks as been storks[6] are found;
Then, groundhogs produce aerobatics displays,
But the skylarks will lark on the ground.

For those who don’t get enough pun-nishment:

1 Brewing;  2 Honey badger;  3 June not to;  4 June no;  5 A do(o)rmouse;  6 A honey badger; 7  Beanstalks
