A Hare's Tale

A Hare's Tale

A Poem by Murtuza
"

All the fuss over carrot cake

"
A busy day, in the rabbit hole-
where Pedro was bustling about.
Flour and milk into a big bowl,
making carrot cake, no doubt!

Pedro conceived an excellent mess!
The pantry, now cloaked in flour.
Whiskers flaunting their shiny best,
and fluffy tail caught in a jar.

Pedro, alert, was pulling quick;
the tail was caught on tight.
A final yank did do the trick!
The jar then flew to the right.

A ghastly expression overtook Pedro
as the main ingredient was knocked.
carrots and shards all over the floor,
the recipe had suddenly flopped.

For spoiled carrots will never suffice.
The perfectionist demanded the best!
The alternative, though not quite as nice,
was broccoli seasoned with 'cress.

Poor Pedro, was stuck in a soup.
He'd rather have fancied a cake.
Long furry ears, now in a droop,
were yearning for a tasty bake.

Years ago, on this very day,
his mama baked him this:
A birthday cake, atop which lay,
pieces of carroty bliss.

Frowning his luck, Pedro hopped to bed,
with eyes, trailed by sorrow's bead.
This bunny's heart, was torn by dread.
It was all quite grim, or so it seemed.

A sudden ring, from the door-bell,
awakened his sorrowful slumber.
A surprise visit, he could tell,
since it was his dearest mother.

A kiss and a hug, big and tight
greeted his overjoyed state.
With gleaming eyes, shiny and bright
a smile on him, it did create.

Happiness and joy took sudden flight
as she slowly unraveled from her basket,
that wonderful, juicy, carroty delight.
The best Birthday ever, no doubt about it!

For mother's love is an ever-lasting treat
that no silly tail can dare knock over.
And despite the bitter hardships life may meet,
Her cake will forever taste sweeter.
