Carrot Hunting

If you can't find a carrot,
That doesn't mean thereisn't one.
Keep seeking out that carrot,
For thereis always food.

If you can't find a carrot,
And you stop looking,
Give up,
Break down,
Then you'll starve.

If you can't find a carrot,
And you've given up on yourself,
And the carrot,
It will elude you,
And haunt you,
Until your just another
Dead bunny for vulteres to
Fight over.

If you can't find that carrot,
Don't stop looking.
It may take awhile to find,
But the longer it takes,
In the end,
The carrot will taste even sweeter.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
