>Mr Plush: A Poem That Tells The Tale Of A Bear


Mr Plush

Mr Plush to some is cute
Cuddly, warm, a soft brown suit
With button eyes and patched up nose
Sentiments bought from long ago

Mr Plush sits in his chair
And rocks the rooms foreboding air
His hands tight clasped with eyes of steel
That scream in silence with foul ill will

Mr Plush first built his pile
When played a hand at Falstaff’s trial
He lines his pot and builds his walls
And loves to see how others fall

Mr Plush sits on a chair
Loved by all with cuddles & care
Mr Plush looks down his nose
And hoards the cash that sentiment flows

Mr Plush once had it all
Friends that came to summer balls
But Mr Plush is now threadbare
All have gone & no one cares

  1. >Wow pete – I had to read several times. There's alot of meaning sitting behind those worn off eyes. Could be a cutsy poem but the sinister hides beneath the surface

  2. >great poem. it was reminding me of my first treasured raggedy anne doll until you got to the eyes of steel and falstaffs trial. she was just a raggedy anne, not the bride of chucky doll. i'm not a real "deep" thinker, but mr. plush sends shivers down my spine.
