The Rabbit Catcher Man

Bent over a desk
hunches a forlorn rabbit catcher man
with a broken net.

The net got stuck in the beak of an eagle
trying to carry away a local sheep.

Well, he wouldn’t have minded
if the eagle just took a sheep away,
had he not remembered
that he stuffed a quarter-ounce of diamonds
in the exact animal that the bird had in its sights.

Looking back on the whole scenario,
the rabbit catcher man
didn’t deserve the diamonds anyway.


Author: Aidan Badinger I am a poet. I write poems. Titles and subjects and subsequent readership are all part of one fragmented figment of our universe, and it's nice that we take it so seriously. Hopefully the craft remains and grows stronger for our children.
