Old Sailor Moon set out to sea in his humble fishing
By the light of the stars he threw out a line and settled back gently
He waited there calmly (he was not in a rush)
as he hummed the old songs of the sea.
They would come he was sure – he’d done this before
– they loved carrots with a tremulous glee.
Then as he was humming a song of the whale he
saw something pale in the night …
A plump little sea rabbit popped up its head – now he just
had to wait for the bite…
An hour passed by and more rabbits appeared but
none were taking the bait…
It was a Seafarin’ Standoff – there was nothing to do
But to sit back and patiently wait. then at quarter
past one (that’s am you know)
Sailor Moon felt a bit of a tug,
And lo and behold as he looked at the line on the carrot there hung
quite a thug!
A fat, juicy rabbit was dangling there in the
spray – it’s teeth clenched on firm.
And as it espied him its eyes opened wide and with vigour it started
Locked in a battle of ferocious force, it was
Man against Rabbit at sea!
Rabbit writhed and he tugged with all of his will but for Rabbit
it was not meant to be.
For Old Sailor Moon had done this before –
he was skilled in the ways of the beast,
And merrily he hummed as he reeled Rabbit in for tonight he was
going to feast…
Then some hours later as he lazed by the hearth
he noticed it needed a stoke,
And as he stood up, he spluttered and died from a rabbit bone stuck
in his throat.
