A poem which attempts to dissuade you from bringing your leveret to Haagen Daz

Well, you know me of a wednesday, I just can't seem to let one go by without adding to the mischievious pile of poems that continue to try to dissuade you from bringing increasingly obscure types of animals and plants to sometimes non existant places of business. Bearing this in mind, at the behest of Dublin Dave, I give you



A poem which attempts to dissuade you from bringing your Leveret to Haagen Daz

Don't bring your Leveret to Haagen Daz
He's better off outside chewing on grass
Just ignore his squeals, I know it sounds crass
but this time it can't be avoided

A Leveret wouldn't understand the decorum
he's impatient in ordering, it's just not the forum
for him, listen up, you don't need a quorum
on this one, you'd be soon unemployed, it

might seem extreme, but you know his long ear
would get lost in pistachio, and his fluffy rear
could be whipped for vanilla, no don't let him near
Say that you'd be completely annoyed, it

might seem unfair, he might cry for strawberry
squeal for a sorbet, demand something dairy
but when he asks if you're sure he can't go, tell him "Very"
No Haagen Daz for your Leveret today

I’ll try to avoid that dangerous habit
That seems no place to take a rabbit.
I’d feel silly complaining when I was there:
“Excuse me? There’s ice cream in my hare.”

LOL, very lyrical I enjoyed reading this.

Acorn, I'll have to try and block your comments if you keep making your replies better than the original poems!! Seriously lol!
Thanks Summer, glad you liked it. Hope you found it informative as well as entertaining

Not even close, Niamh B - rhyming "avoided" with "unemployed, it" and "annoyed, it" and continuing into the next verses is brilliant. (Not to mention the educational value ... I had no idea what a leveret was.)

Niamh B said...

Ah shucks, s'nothing.
Thanks

I really enjoy these poems where do you get the ideas from?
Do you think it would be safe for a short eared dwarf rabbit

Niamh B said...

Thanks Gwei - this one was on request and I do accept commisions, I'm quite sure it's safe to bring your short eared dwarf rabbit to Haagen Daz, do let me know how you get along, and if there are any other animals or places of business that you wish to know more about, just ask

Ah, heaven on a stick. It's the vanilla ones with the chocolate and almond coating that really do it for me.

Oh, reverie-ing there. Great stuff.
Gotta have Wildebeest at Waterstones. We haven't had wildebeest, have we?

Niamh B said...

Quite right, we haven't had wildebeests or waterstones,, and they're such deep thinkers it's a real risk... leave it with me a couple weeks

Titus said...

Great Gnus!

I only suggested it so I could say that.

Niamh B said...

Hmmm - good one Titus, will add to the list!

This is great and Leverety levity is grand
but if you do poems on demand,
then unless with rabbits foot in hand,
Please,
Don't bring your Púca to Poulaphouca

Niamh B said...

All I can promise, and this ain't much, but it will be added to the list.
Snáthaid an Phúca means daddy long legs - or "needles of the ghost" in Irish btw...
