An apple paring turned brown under his nose this morning.

He acquires names with each lollop and wobble, the Cinnamon Bun.

Turning, he thumps his hind foot - once more, Mr. Hot Cross Bun.

Still, under the chair, he blots up the room's silence - hunched in, a hare ball.

What does he mean, bumping us on the ankles with his nose?

This rabbit is proof of a fondness in being for flamboyant ears.
