The Promise - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

I feel like the hare
hanging by its heels from a tree
his open guts accusing me

even in death
the hare continues
to stare

'That's one for the pot! '
my kind uncle laughs
my mind screams and screams

'Forgive me..! ' I ask of the hare
'I am new to this life
& death thing! '

'Don't forget me...' says the hare
'Just keep me forever
in your mind! '
