Ode to Subduing a Bison

By Kiersten, poem title suggested by Whirl

They may look sweet and cuddly
And it's terribly tempting, my son
But believe me when I tell you
One does not just hug a bison.

Although they are fashionable
Those horns are not merely decor
And should you attempt a snuggle
You'll end up with a very bad gore.

This just made my day:

"One does not just hug a bison"

It sounds like the title of a fantastically memoir-ish book.

Kiersten your rhyming genius continues to inspire me and so (as part of my never-ending auditioning to be guest lyricist with the Punktuations) I offer you....

They don't look all that cuddly
Those horns are not for fun
Think clearly and not muddly
Before approaching a bison
They hang around all huddly
In groups of more than one
They'll beguile you all befuddly
It's best to bring a gun.

Kiersten, You've got mad skills in the rhyming department! Are you sure you don't want to be the next Shel Silverstein? Did I spell that right?

She wrestled to the ground
every rhyme she found,
cracked her able whip
and now her poems zip.

If I'm ever at a rodeo — or even a steak house — you can be sure I'll be chanting this baby...
