WHY, by            
First Line: Do you know why the rabbits are caught in the snare
Last Line: Do you know? Well, I'll tell you -- it's love.
Subject(s): Animals; Love


Do you know why the rabbits are caught in the snare
Or the tabby cat's shot on the tiles?
Why the tigers and lions creep out of their lair?
Why an ostrich will travel for miles?
Do you know why a sane man will whimper and cry
And weep o'er a ribbon or glove?
Why a cook will put sugar for salt in a pie?
Do you know? Well, I'll tell you -- it's Love.
