, ,

Winnie the Pooh,
a funny chubby bear
with constant appetite
and wanderings
in search of honey,
drags his friends
into weird adventures
with no regard
for the consequences.
He is an anti-hero,
a troublesome personality.
Yet he has a cult following.
“Oops!…” – I repeat
after Britney Spears.
We have no need of such “heroes”.

Good bye, Pooh!
May you rest in poop.
