Dumb Poem # 2 - The Problem With Rabbits

Updated on October 13, 2010

I Should Have Warned You

These hub page things are good exercise for the mind and the fingers. The stuff I put together here may not be all that much fun for you, however. At the risk of turning you off, nice people, I should alert you to the real situation here. This is great good fun for me. Not only that, I am learning how to use a really handy (and very comprehensive) FREE imaging program ( the "Open Source" program named "GIMP") to take images that I scan from paper and convert  into jpeg images I can shuffle around in my computer or onto Web pages, like this one. So be prepared for what I intend to aim at you.  Who knows - maybe these little rhymes and their images will bring a smile or two for you to enjoy. As a reminder: Each of the rhymes you will see, like the one here, started off by my putting a single word into motion. The one used here was "rabbits." Try it yourself. It is lots of fun.

The Problem With Rabbits

Everyone knows, of a moonlit night,
that rabbits are loving and never will fight.
And, too, it is said that on nights very dark,
rabbits won't feud while on love they embark.
The problem with rabbits,you see, is profound.
It's loving - not fighting - they spread all around.
And now that these truths have been amply declared,
It wonders me much that we're not overhared

      Hotspur - I am so glad that I am not the only person to have an inkling about that "American Zen" critter. What a relief !

      Gus ;-)))

      That's the critter; think I saw it once on a program called 'Furred Filosofers and their Four Footed Friends' on the National Geographic channel...they've been trying to raise them in captivity for years but they just won't live behind bars ;]

      Hotspur - I would have likely known about that, but I never knew how to spell Zhen - Zan - Sihn - or, as you mentioned, "Zen." I'm guessing that an "American Zen" thing is one of those heavily furred critters that inhabited the waterless passes of the high mountain areas near Tompkin's Junction Naval Station in North Dakota. I know that I should have paid closer attention to things in the animal husbandry class; however, back then I had little interest in spelling, and the thought of being a husband had not yet occured to me. Ah well...

      Gus ;-)))
