The Ranger doesn't even know, Yogi
That the old park is silent today.
No stone's moved for your shifty eyes
No picnic baskets gone astray.

Why are you lying among the bushes Yogi?
Your flesh is cold, your fur stiff;
Aren't you coming along with me, Yogi?
There are many goodies to lift.

The Ranger won't like it Yogi
That you can't move anymore.
It won't be the same in Jellystone Park
Without your hibernating snore.

Some campers say you are dead, Yogi;
You, a bear so smart and brave'
It seems I will have to eat berries, Yogi;
It'll be quiet from now on in the cave.

Why do you not answer me, Yogi?
Why do you just lie there and stare?
The flies are eating you now, Yogi,
You weren't smarter than the average bear!

The Ranger's crying now, Yogi,
Life will be dull without you.
Here's wishing you picnic-baskets in heaven;
From your old friend, Boo-Boo.

interesting piece makes me wonder what the motivation for this was.
is it how we outgrow things and put them away?

I would say that this is cute if it weren't so morbid ... I second wordweaver's question ... was there a reason behind this I'm not seeing?

Interesting piece.

I like the part where Bo Bo is giving him
picnic baskets from heaven.

I don't know if I'm sick and twisted, but I like it.. It reminds me of comics.. Every character dies sometime.. I thought that cartoon couldn't die though.. Poor Boo-Boo, what will he do?

Love,
Lady

Terry, have you outgrown Saturday's cartoons, or just wishing for better Saturday fun from your past, knowing that
what you see as fun now, simply, cannot, ever last?

[Although I'm sure you'll give it a good shot!]

Terry: I read this yesterday and thought it was great. It really got me to thinking and here is the results. Thanks for the fun and inspiration.

How Yogi Died

They called the coroner to discover the cause
Of poor Yogi's demise. Did poachers brake any laws?

No pattern could be found, Yogi's fur was intact.
No buckshot or solid rounds, a perfect rug in fact.

Next they tested his blood for the taint of chicken.
Botulism was ruled out, nothing foul from the kitchen.

Boo Boo was questioned with little success.
All he could say was "Hanna's the best!"

The Ranger was perplexed, till what should he see
Four odd looking creatures, molesting a tree.

One red, one green, one yellow, and one blue
With odd looking headgear and a vacuum too.

What brings you to the park? Do you know of Yogi's doom?
They squeaked unintelligently, then sucked out Ranger's brains with the vacuum.

They've made the park their home, claiming Saturday morning t.v. fun
Tele-Tubbies from hell. Yogi was first, next are your daughters and sons.
