    Goodbye Nibbler

    Nibble away at the last pages
    of a whodunit will you?
    you do the bunny flop
    with one good ear
    for listening.

    Binking through your kingdom,
    thumping would be leaders
    as black as Nero,
    snuggling into Banana Muffin.

    Your life twitching away
    under a glaring light
    in the middle of the night
    Now who will be king?

    Excuse my humor in this serious matter, but it seems this old one should have already nibbled completely. Now what we need to do is maybe condemn it to 100 years of Cacian Perpetua.

    interesting piece and fun too as always
    I liked the way it ends on a question mark. cool piece.
    it may never try
    but when it does it sigh
    it is just that

    An ode to a dead pet? What is binking, or is it a typo?
    A deltaesque tribute indeed

    For those who believe,
    no explanation is necessary.
    For those who do not,
    none will suffice.

    That's why it's only a century, to make sure at least one rabbit comes, flops and breaks its spine.

    Cafolini, excusing your humour is not acceptable so if you're not reviewing my work, bugger off.

    Why re-viewing when viewing is enough?

    Why can't Cafolini give a straightforward review? If she doesn't like Light poems, then she should not condescend. I love the quirky, light nature of this poem. Keep writing delta40, if not just to spite the dull-witted Cafolini.

    I just hope my daughter hasn't visited the thread yet. It was her rabbit which passed away.

    All you have to do is read the title to know somebody's little furry pet died. I hate when that happens, and the smaller they are, the fewer years they seem to have on this planet. Requiescat in pace, Nibbler. Well done, Delta. Light poems have to have a particular touch for me to enjoy them; I'm not always sure what that is, but this brings a bit of a smirk to my face. You seem to be treading a line between facile and matter of fact in this instance, not a particularly easy feat.
