some things you don’t forget #7

some things you don’t forget #7

we lived in the country the end
of a long lane a car sped up a
stranger saw us four kids playing
on the lawn spied the iron rabbit
sitting in the grass grabbed it by
its metal ears said here’s a dollar
shoved the rabbit into his trunk
gunned back down the lane the limp
bill left behind we stood stupified
I sometimes wonder where that
cherished valuable piece of statuary
is now I don’t really want that man
to sizzle forever beyond the styx
but I do really hope he singes a little
in fact quite a little and weighted
down by a large grey iron rabbit
