Shhh! I’m Catching a Buzz! by Peter V. Dugan

I watched the rabbit slip through the gate

into the private garden of my neighbor’s

prized pot plants.


My neighbor had complained that rabbits

must be getting in and feasting on his

fabulous foliage.


I stealthily approached hoping to catch

this larcenous leporid in the act. And there he was,

chewing on a leaf or two, not even noticing me.


I took another step, a twig cracked, the rabbit

looked up and saw me.

For what seemed like an eternity, both of us

were frozen, transfixed and staring at each other.


Then the rabbit stood up on his hind legs

and started a bunny boogie break dance

performing a rendition of the rabbit robot

morphing into the moon walk and then

a split, into a head spin.


He stood up again, pointed at me with his

front paw, gave a sly wink and disappeared

in a mad flash dash into the bushes


That hare was high on hemp, a real Buzz Bunny.

I wonder if he had known that the plants

were grown from seeds of  medical marijuana

would he have asked, “Wazzup Doc?”

Tick tock says the magic clock

In a language that’s part of the soul

Get in line for the gate

You don’t want to be late

For your trip down the rabbit hole…


Down the Rabbit Hole” is a collective work of writings from poets who like you, live their lives inundated with the challenges and demands of everyday life. They have unlocked the door to boundaries we all make for ourselves and turned those boundaries into fantastic, beautiful worlds to both help ease the boredom and perhaps spark the imagination.
