From the Black Forest

Fundraising to adopt Jerry has really binded my family as we all search for once sacred relics to sell. This little wooden bear was handed over enthusiastically with detailed instructions for pricing (which I will strictly adhere to as this little poem illustrates).

“DON’T SELL
That bear,” shouts mum. “blah
blah blah thE BLACK FOREST BLAH
to cheap bLAH BLah blah”
