“The Rabbit” — Cassidy Ayers

 

Who let the rabbit into my room?

He jumps up on my ceiling, starin’ into the gloom

I hear him late at night runnin’ through my dreams

Fur soft as candy floss, but oh how his eyes gleam

 

These nights I’m tryin’ to get to the moon

It hangs just beyond my reach, a fickle trickster’s boon

Right outside my window, up there in the clouds

I’d reach a little farther, but I know I’d fall down

 

The rabbit is a trickster, I know he made the moon

Late up one night on my ceiling, staring’ into the gloom

He hung it just beyond my reach, eyes gleaming red

Hoping that I’d reach too far and fall to my death
