Lady Rabbit

Although it hurts to live like this
she doesn’t want to die
and something's' got to give in this
when she looks at the sky

A woman stripped of everything
down to her dignity
holes in her mouth, holes in her heart
she laughs, covering her face with art

In sensitive health
and dwindled wealth
of physical strength
she can only ask God
she can only seek out
the path that's beneath
a miserable heath

Through her x-ray vision
commands her mission
she sees through it like glass
the future, the past
and how it could be
of hidden beauty
Interrelations that mean
to defeat the machine
she's framed; “Off The Beam”
and so she shall drudge
through, holding a grudge
ruined is her trust
by judgments' unjust

She runs like the rabbit
whom "wise owls" eat up
with a glimmer of beauty
amongst her dry skin
looking for water
to hydrate within

Oh, can she find the water?
will she find her way?
she has her children to protect
for in a nest, they lay...

She is a gentle woman
but only shows the tough
for if she stops to cry
the bigger animals get rough

But no one will so bother
with creatures impossible to catch
whose uncanny survival skills
can never quite be matched...

And so she leaves the imprints of her feet
upon the snow,
back to her secret burrow
Somewhere no creature knows..
