A Pinned Decimal
"The Hungry Bear" by Dolly'sPoems
Stood there in misty fog unseen
a lean foreboding bear;
his hunger dared him to be keen,
routinely in despair.

He needs to eat, survive, be brave,
and skulk about, escape the grave.

And in this hour of need he saw--
then clawed into the skin;
and with a grin ate something raw,
no chore, he licked his chin.


Author Notes
A Pinned Decimal

A ten line poem, 8,6,8,6/88/8,6,8,6. Iambic meter. Rhyme scheme complex below. First stanza introduces the problem, the second, the reason, and the third, the solution. But any story is acceptable in any order.
