The Rabbit

1The rabbit has a charming face:
2Its private life is a disgrace.
3I really dare not name to you
4The awful things that rabbits do;
5Things that your paper never prints --
6You only mention them in hints.
7They have such lost, degraded souls
8No wonder they inhabit holes;
9When such depravity is found
10It only can live underground.
