HUNTING SEASON, by            
First Line: I looked out in my yard today
Last Line: Around my poppy bed.
Subject(s): Hunting; Hunters

I looked out in my yard today
And saw a refugee:
A rabbit that had run away
From stark reality.

He'd left the woods he knew as home
And fled to alien lands,
Because the fields he liked to roam
Were filled with hostile bands.

It seemed a pity there should be
A price upon its head,
This creature hopping merrily
Around my poppy bed.
