this is just to say…

Oh, Buddy, our Jersey Wooly rabbit, can be quite a handful! He always keeps me on my toes, so here’s a quick little apology that he wrote to me.


this is just to say…

i jumped out of my cage

this afternoon

while you were at school


which mostly likely

you will probably

have a heart attack

when you

get home


forgive me!

i just wanted

a lazy day

in which

i could




just hangin’ out!
