The cage door opened,
Slowly the bunny hopped out.
It saw big shoes and legs the size of tree trunks.
A little girl swooped down her hands,
The bunny dodged them.
The giants were scary, it thought,
It might get hurt again.
The bunny darted up and down the corridor past the other cages.
The girl soon gave up trying to catch it.
The mother told the girl they would find a friendlier rabbit,
This one doesn’t like to be around people, she said.
The cage door shut,
The bunny pressed its paw against the wire.
It watched as the girl’s shoes disappeared from view,
It twitched its nose at the empty corridor.
The bunny did want a home,
It really did.
