Trooper

There’s a bear in my house
who says Heart
when you squeeze its chest.
Its ears make it sing.
Its favourite colour is blue,
its favourite colour is red,
its favourite colour is green
depending on what paw you press.
It’s covered in drool,
it has a crinkly stomach,
and it never stops smiling.
I hope it’s OK on its own at night.
