There's a bear now.
"What troubles you my darling child?"
the teacher asked "whats got you riled
"up sitting on the floor like that?"
May stared towards the wooden bat.
"This poster here, miss, take a look
"They're everywhere. I thas me shook
"and scared and sad and fuming mad
"and overall I just feel bad."
The teacher read the sign from May
and knew exactly what to say
she fell down, grew great tufts of hair
doubled in size, becoming a bear
The teacher-bear was very large
with great big paws, it looked in charge
but before it spoke, behind the bear
hopped into view, a baby hare.
"Excuse me if I might speak first
"I see you're troubled, May
"You're in a scary place, that's true
"so here's what I can say."
