RABBITS- the first impression

Written by: HELLEN MASIDO

Do rabbits bite?
I sure hope not
‘Cause their fur’s so fluffy
Like my cat’s
And they are well rounded
Fat even,
They look cuddly 
Like a hairy teddy
And I just have to touch them!

Slowly I reach my palm
Pause it above its skin

It doesn’t move away

So I lower my hand
And touch its nose
Gentle
It flinches a little
But stays on 

I touch it again
But this time 
It shies away.
And I smile in relief

rabbits don’t bite after all
