Poetry: What Happened When Bobby Jack Cockrum Tried To Bring Home A Pit Bulldog or What His Daddy Said To Him that Day

What Hap­pened When Bob­by Jack Cock­rum Tried To Bring Home A Pit Bulldog
What His Dad­dy Said To Him that Day
–David Lee
From A Lega­cy of Shad­ows: Select­ed Poems

let me tell you the story
of the 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
