Hoppily Ever After

IMG_0093They all
lived happily
ever after
but now
happy
is that carrot
swaying just
ahead
never
quite
in the teeth,
the earthy damp root
of imagined happiness
on
ever hungry
tongues.
Pet rabbit
knows
better,
snatches
every carrot from
your fingers,
runs away,
hides
under the bed,
content.
