Poème Fin Comple

A poem will end when a poem will end,
not a moment before or aft.
When a reader has fun, or has just begun
to explode his belly with laughs.

If the subject be love, or white frilly doves,
then end with a heart on a stick.
While painted clowns and western ghost towns
should end with a frightful lick.

A walk through a park or moonlit dark
should end with an “ooo” or “ah”
While Christmas tales or Christmas sales
might end with a “boo” or “bah!”

Poems of rabbits or squeaky new gadgets
could end in many a way.
But the foot of a rabbit can be its own gadget
when put in the pocket to play.
So sad to see, that three legged he
as he barely hops away.

My favorite end is when he comes again
to offer his life to me.
For in the long run – the rabbit is done
and his life full of misery.

Acquiescence, dear friend, is the very best end
when the rabbits do come to thee.
So cut off their feet, and be quite complete
for the very best fin complet……
