The Tale of Billy Bob Bunny

When Billy Bob Bunny turned one, his mama said, “Listen up, son. I’m sure you could get away from a net, but beware the guy bearing a gun! If a gun-toting farmer you see, you must hip hop away instantly. If he has good aim, you might end up lame or worse yet, rabbit stew you will be. So do please, Billy Bob, take good care that you don’t end up being the hare that loses his life so Farmer Jack’s wife has a soft rabbit stole she can wear!” But it wasn’t Billy Bob’s habit to listen to his Mama Rabbit. Without using good sense, he hopped over the fence, saw a carrot and started to grab it. Farmer Jack spied that rascal. Oh, my! From a gun, bullets started to fly. When a shot nicked his ear, Billy fell down from fear. Then he heard a small sound like a cry. “Please don’t shoot at the bunny again,” cried the farmer’s sweet daughter, and then Billy could feel her stroking his soft fur, and at night he was placed in a pen. Mama came to the pen and she said, “You are trapped. I’m just glad you’re not dead.” Though no freedom he had, Billy Bob was not sad. “I’m a loved pet,” he said, “and well fed!” The moral of this story is: You can tolerate any condition as long as you are loved and well fed!

Wow, great job on this one Andrea! Congratulations on it being Number One!Loved your ending!"he hopped over the fence, saw a carrot and started to grab it." These lines reminded me of your footle poem where you say "grab it Rabbit'. by Pick pocket bunny. I always remember that one.

Not everybody can tell a story in rhyme , let alone in perfect limerick rhyme and with an AAAHHHH !! ending . Had to be a winner and well done . PS, Fathima was a regular here some years back . I wrote for her , in reply to piece she had written about herself , on a windy day . Tks again for stopping by my " rambling page" and for leaving kind words . Sean ..

You must be getting late.But I want to know if you advance the time by 1 hr and 38 min.Then you are just skipping this time.I mean after just midnight it will be 1:38 ? So there will not be any record of this 1hr and 38 min?
