A Big Black Rabbit - Poem by Matt Johnston

A big black rabbit passed right under the moon
On great dark wings to soar and swoon.
I called, “Oh great black rabbit where are you off? ”
An old fool beside me did chuckle and cough
“That’s just a raven, which is only a bird.”
The old man drew out slowly each word.
But it was a rabbit that I saw soaring,
My cause for assurance is birds are boring.

    I love this! ; 0) My philosophy is: If life is not fun....MAKE it fun! ! To possess and impliment an active imagination is all it takes. A Big Black Soaring Rabbit is WAY more fun than just your common everyday flying bird! ; 0)
    Enjoyed this very much.

    This was a nice creative thing. I guess Jimmy Carter was right.
