Based on an old joke


I opened up her heart,
Before her bedroom door.
The strangest sight greeted me.
Teddy Bears on shelves,
From ceiling to the floor.

Small ones at the bottom.
Large one's at the top.
It wasn't very fair, Even
the short one's in the middle,
seemed to stop and stare.

I tried my best to pass the test.
All those teddy bears watching,
It really was a strain.
I gazed into her loving eyes,
"Ceiling needs painting again".

I had my fun the deed was done,
Asking how it was, While
thinking proudly of myself.
She replied quite sternly;
"You can have any bear you want,
As long as it's one from the bottom shelf".
