Rabbit Poetry

Here's a poem I've kept around and post it today because I like it and feel like it.

The Rabbit

ANONYMOUS (1100-1945)

The rabbit has a charming face:
Its private life is a disgrace.
I really dare not name to you
The awful things that rabbits do;
Things that your paper never prints --
You only mention them in hints.
They have such lost, degraded souls
No wonder they inhabit holes;
When such depravity is found
It only can live underground.

Not that this has anything to do with the real Rabbit, but it is immensely clever. Don't you think?

Slye Fox says:

And of course this reminds of the Monty Python's Holy Grail bit...

"Follow! But! Follow only if ye be men of valor, for the entrance to this cave is guarded by a creature so foul, so cruel that no man yet has fought with it and lived! Bones of four fifty men lie strewn about its lair. So, brave knights, if you do doubt your courage or your strength, come no further, for death awaits you all with nasty big pointy teeth."

No coincidence, huh? If you got something to say, just say it.
