What Happened When Bobby Jack Cockrum Tried to Bring Home a Pit Bulldog
What His Daddy Said to Him That Day

let me tell you the story
of a man who saved
a baby grizzly bear
from a forest fire
and brought it home
nursed it
fed it
kept it like his own

And how the last thing
that man ever learned on earth
when it grown up
and he tried to keep it
out of the hog pen one morning
was the lesson
of what a grizzly bear
is at last

And it had
a final exam
he couldn't help
but pass
