Bear In There

By Shel Silverstein

By MiKenzie Stokes 6th period

There's a polar bear
In our Frigidaire—
He likes it 'cause it's cold in there.
With his seat in the meat
And his face in the fish
And his big hairy paws
In the buttery dish,
He's nibbling the noodles,
He's munching the rice,
He's slurping the soda,
He's licking the ice.
And he lets out a roar
If you open the door.
And it gives me a scare
To know he's in there—
That polary bear
In our Fridgitydaire
Rhyme-seat and meat
Personification-nibbling the noodles
Hyperbole-theres a bear in our fridgitydaire
I think the poem is about the girl was so hungry she ate like a bear
I think the author wrote this poem because she was maybe at the zoo and she was hungry.
