Blueberry and Bunny

Blueberry and Bunny

A Poem by Michael G. Smith

Merry Christmas to all... and to all a good night. (with sinister laugh)


Blueberry, he says "it's how he rolls"

Always off of counter

Some say he hit his head

Others say he's off his rocker


But, around he does on floors

And into bedroom corners

He lies and lies and lies some more

In places undercovers


There's a very dusty busty bunny

Like "a lady in waiting"

The fruit and hare, an unlikely pair

Of course, that's an assumption I 've been making


But, he's heard that good company keeps

Us together, and further 

Growing old as wine and Yeats

While carrying on affairs in forever pleasure


That is at least

Until next December'

Upon an Christmas evening eve

When fessed from side effects of blizzard's cabin fever


The surprise of his life

Is that he never knew 

That he wed a loving wife

And his home a cleaning it was due


With left gifts of stainless steel stove

And a newer matching freezer

There's more than one way to skin a rabbit

The trick is to get a blueberry tart to tease her


And quite mysteriously

A next door neighbor

Like a frightened rabbit, just up and disappears

No rhyme nor reason, no-one ever sees her


And due to heavier fresher snow

Some wondered why she'd even want to leave at all

Especially in the midst of bitterness of cold

The hope is that wherever she's at...

Bunny's hasn't tripped and fallen down a rabbit's hole

Blueberry and bunny... an unlikely pair indeed. Your imagination is remarkable, Mike. You leave me guessing as to whom you will pair next. :)

Thanks Leslie. One of those two a.m. writes.
Reminds me of the time a grape rolled under the sofa undetected... And met up with a few dust bunnies of her own!

I try not to go beyond three out of respect for the one waiting.
