THIEF AMONG THE VEGETABLES by Patricia Crandall (poem)

Dratted rabbit
interferes
with my planting/hoeing/spraying
for the season,
Scat nuisance!
I plant onions
circling round the garden
and smile fatuously.
That little brown cottontail
will never pass
through this barrier again
I have been told.
Lo and behold ...
my rich harvest of radishes,
lettuce, green beans
and squash ,.. cucumbers
ripe for plucking
pilfered, stolen,
nibbled away by
that long eared, bushy-tailed
vegetable thief!
