Blackberry's Rabbit

Hot June morning,
Dog caught her brunch.
Baby rabbit zigged when
Zagging was apropos.

Br'er rabbit, were you eating
In the berry patch when
Blackberry caught you today?
(She never captured before.)

Did Grandma Rabbit tell
Stories of gray men picking
Berries, wearing stovepipe
Leggings to sentry br'er snake?

The ping, ping, ping, noise
Coming from the brambles.
Fang meets metal music,
Jam made from a jam escaped.

Cotton tail swallowed down
Child bunny tartar banquet.
Blackberry licks her chops and
Dog smiles toward the briers.
