A polar bear was philosophizing one six-month-long night --
Wearing his natural fur coat of white,
He wondered how many of his kind it might take
Unlike Porky Pig with his, "That's all folks!"
If you want to know his age, count his bathtub rings,
He concluded that he was Polish -- longed to meet the Pope
The bearskin rug merchants were coming after him --
The answer to his problem? -- this writer's gifts abound --
You may anticipate the punch line as quick-witted people do:
