Putting on Really Awful Airs

You need to be aware
A bear will still be bear
No matter if all hairy;
Should fairy, most unfair,
At Fair, fair fare prepare,
How dare he make it dairy?

Now, if you ride mere mare
You may be certain there
Will be a ride that’s merry,
But if you stare at stair
And ‘up ’ or ‘down’ declare,
To take such step be wary!

A funeral is where
There is a certain heir
Of hope extraordinary;
But should such hopes all err,
And there will come no share,
With corpse those hopes they’ll bury!

Though weight you may have tare,
Wait! Tear some off of there —
A way to weigh contrary*;
And though a pear you pare,
It won’t appear a pair —
All really somewhat scary.

*as in ‘Mary, Mary quite …’

Errancy  — Airs Above the Ground, but not as in Lipizzaners.

Mozart would have been disappointed that this part of the episode was since censored out.  The subject appeals to sweet little girls as well as to brilliant musicians, by the way.

    A fine tour de force, as the Frenchies say.
    (Btw, bear with me, I think one of the non-hairy bears should be bare, n’est-ce pas?)
