Nap Time


The life of a mom isn’t easy, you know.
Things to be done and places to go.

Hunting, fishing and prowling around.
Shopping for food at the campground.

Where are the cubs? Often they wander.
One minute they’re here, then way over yonder.

Snarling, growling, giving my best.
I’m really tired. I need a rest!
