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.
