The Owl and the Rabbit

The Owl and the Rabbit

 by  Gordon Kuhn  02/28/2010

 You sat, grandmother, and watched me as a boy

and thought of me as some strange toy

your hands folded mildly on your lap

but I could feel the steely endgame trap

that desire you held to me was not so bare

regardless of how soft your faultless stare

I saw beyond as two worlds opened wide to me

I sensed the hidden evil in your soul

and sought to flee from your wicked goal

for no protector there was for me

save myself to keep me safe from thee

for death it was you wished for me

you the owl and I the rabbit be.
