166. “Oh Rabbit!”

This just came to me this morning, without any warning, before I thought of rising, or prising the eyelids apart. Not for kiddies, they wouldn’t get it, it’s purely just adult fun….


166. “Oh Rabbit!”. (04 Feb 2017).


I can see why she tried it,

I can see why she applied it,

I can see why she liked it,

At that time of the night,

But I can’t see why,

She cried, and she came,

To give it a name,

As I heard her call,

From the other side of the wall….

“Oh Rabbit, oh Rabbit I love you,”

“You’re the best,”

“You get inside better than the rest!”

While I can see, they have their use,

And they can rattle a tooth, or two,

I just think that perhaps,

It’s a hell of a fuss,

Over an electric toothbrush,

However well it cleans in the gaps.

About Jim Laing

The Buddha said there were four kinds of people. Those who run from dark to dark, those who run from light to dark, those who run from dark to light and those who run from light to light. From a life going from dark to dark to having a few years running from dark to light, with scuffed hands and knees from sometimes falling, I may be getting the hang of it now. How it began is not now how it is, I need a quiet space, After the noise of the day, So I take sanctuary in the creativity, And my soul feeds, On sometimes dark, Sometimes light fantasy, And I dare like many to work, But stay up off my knees, To dream, perchance to suffer, But always still to dream. Here are things mostly lyrical and poetic, with nonsense sometimes, reviews and personal musings. The coffees hot and always black. The words not necessarily so.
