The Rabbit Woman

By Elton Camp

Rabbits are known for fast multiplication 
A few humans are in this same situation 

Mrs. Vassilyev, a Russian peasant, 
Holds the world record to the present

He feat, as it has been presented,
Is completely, officially documented

She lived from 1707 to 1782
Bore 69 kids before she was through

Twenty-seven times in a family way
“Prolific” is the only word to say

Of quadruplets, four sets
Triplets, seven times she gets

Of twins, she had sixteen pairs
A single birth she never dares

Her husband then wanted more
A second wife, eighteen bore

If you doubt that this can be
Google it for yourself and see
