Question 47 in our cryptic quiz: “Three is the magic number”

22nd September 2009 by Emilie

How about a little poem? A break would be nice. As Corvus said (he is our super clue writer), Unbearable will give people paws… er, pause. So let’s make tea and get started on this one!

Unbearable Lightness of Being: Poppa’s Tale

I know you probably want me to write a poem, but I’m not good at writing. My pen can never quite find its way across the page, roaming from uppercase to lowercase at a whim.. I’m also not a poet like my wife and son. In fact, when I try to count syllables, I usually end up writing numbers instead of letters. Well, if Black Bart could call himself a po8, I guess I can too. Anyway, here’s my story about going to stay with Erin the Hedgehog.

There once WERE 5ome b3ars from the city.

One large, one MEDIUM, a third bitty.

When 5uddenly one day

They were told, “Run away!”

By three good E66S who were witty.

So what could they say-they fled n0rth east.

They were HAPPY t0gether at least.

Baby bear raised his HE4D,

LOOKED around and said,

“I know WHERE we’re 9oing to escape the beast!”

QUESTION: What is the name of the green space where Erin lives?

Answer in your comments please!

Did you know that MOO and charity: water are both “September babies” and turned 3 this September?
