A Bear Need Know a Fox

A bear need know a fox.
A cat won’t do,
An ox is too much ox,
A fish too food,
Dog too much a bear,
Beaver’s always busy,
Mice are far too scared,
Owl a bit too quizzy,
Toad will never listen,
Snake lives in its fang,
Bee’s about its mission,
Wolf won’t leave the gang.

A fox is different from a bear
In all the right ways.
It would also be quite fair
To come right out and say
A fox must know a bear.
