People are far too complicated to be able to describe in a few words so I am not even going to try.

  1. Grisly’s intent is to scare
    Whilst the grizzly is named for its hair.*
    It’s language to blame,
    They both sound the same,
    But only one of them’s a bear.

    * According to Wikipedia, Meriwether Lewis and William Clark first described the bear as grisley, which could be interpreted as either “grizzly” (i.e., “grizzled”—that is, with grey-tipped hair) or “grisly” (“fear-inspiring”, now usually “gruesome”). The modern spelling supposes the former meaning; even so, naturalist George Ord formally classified it in 1815 as Ursus arctos horribilis for its character.
