Tumble Drier


I'm sitting in the tumble drier
With a furry rabbit friend
As I get higher he gets lower
I wonder when this cycle ends

So as I sit in contemplation
On this cycle with one wheel
I wonder if a tumble drier
Increases unique bike appeal

The rabbit does not judge my actions
He's happy in an errant sock
If only at the time of boarding
The rabbit's thoughts had turned to stop

I'd like to blame the silly rabbit
But rubbing up against his ears
Helps me balance on my cycle
Reducing drowsiness and fear

The bunny as you may imagine
Is happy in this tumbling world
But as the spinning speed increases
The bunny innards may explode

His fur is thick and pink and lustrous
It clogs my unicycle wheels
The faster round the drum I cycle
The more being bunny now appeals

Faster faster as we tumble
I think we may become as one
The sacrifice is in the balance
Of unicycle-bunny-dom

As the drum shines ever brighter
Bunny fur on stainless steel
I see my own intense reflection
Sporting rabbit ears and tail

The drum spins spinning ever faster
Reaching maximum rotate
The cycle, me and well the rabbit
Combine as one, mix up, mutate

So here I am some minutes later
Slightly dazed in rabbit fur
Two legs, one wheel and big pink ears
The errant sock may well concur

The moral of this strange adventure
If it isn't plain to see
Don't spin with bikes or stuffed fur toys
Unless you want to look like me.
