Bear In There By Shel Silverstein

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.

Jimmy Jet and His TV Set

I’ll tell you the story of Jimmy Jet
And you know what I tell you is true.
He loved to watch his TV set
Almost as much as you.

He watched all day, he watched all night
Till he grew pale and lean,
From “The Early Show” to “The Late Late Show”
And all the shows between.

He watched till his eyes were frozen wide,
And his bottom grew into his chair.
And his chin turned into a tuning dial,
And antennae grew from his hair.

And his brains turned into TV tubes,
And his face to a TV screen.
And two knobs saying “VERT.” and “HORIZ.”
Grew where his ears had been.

And he grew a plug that looked like a tail
So we plugged in little Jim.
And now instead of him watching TV
We all sit around and watch him.

Fire and Ice


Some say the world will end in fire;
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to persih twice,
I think i know enough of hate
To Know that for destruction ice
is also great and would suffice.

Yun Hi Intezaar Karta Raha


Yun Hi Intezaar Karta Raha Aur Waqt Dhalta Raha
Mere Intezaar Ka Soraj Har Lamha Pigalta Raha

Tay Tu Ye Hua Tha Ke Payen Ge Aik Hi Manzal
Bech Rah Main Wo Mukr Gaya Suye Manzal Main Chalta Raha

Kabi Us Ke Liye Hans Diye Kabi Us Ke Liye Ro Diye
Wo Khud Ko Tu Na Badal Saka Bas Muj Ko Hi Badalta Raha

Ab Tak Kese Chup Raha Ye Mat Poch Majid
Waqt Muje Behlata Raha Or Main Behlta Raha
