Poem by Alan Alexander Milne
There were Two Little Bears who lived in a Wood, And one of them was Bad and the other was Good. Good Bear learnt his Twice Times One - But Bad Bear left all his buttons undone. They lived in a Tree when the weather was hot, And one of them was Good, and the other was Not. Good Bear learnt his Twice Times Two - But Bad Bear's thingummies were worn right through. They lived in a Cave when the weather was cold, And they Did, and they Didn't Do, what they were told. Good Bear learnt his Twice Times Three - But Bad Bear never had his hand-ker-chee. They lived in the Wood with a Kind Old Aunt, And one said 'Yes'm,' and the other said 'Shan't!' Good Bear learnt his Twice Times Four - But Bad Bear's knicketies were terrible tore. And then quite suddenly (just like Us) One got Better and the other got Wuss. Good Bear muddled his Twice Times Three - But Bad Bear coughed in his hand-ker-chee! Good Bear muddled his Twice Times Two - But Bad Bear's thingummies looked like new. Good Bear muddled his Twice Times One - But Bad Bear never left his buttons undone. There may be a Moral, though some say not; I think there's a moral, though I don't know what. But if one gets better, as the other gets wuss, These Two Little Bears are just like Us. For Christopher remembers up to Twice Times Ten ... But I keep forgetting where I put my pen.* * So I have had to write this one in pencil.
