My neighbor Tony told me to get a haircut. I was riding my bike on Hamilton Ct. He was wearing a "double-0 Corndog" t-shirt.
Sitting in his front yard, double-cup drinking,
Playing 2 Chainz on his Beats Pill.
On 44th between Chatham Crescent and Waters,
Halfway between the circle of Theus Park And the Bananas at Daffin, I found a rabbit: A double-Dutch, double-stuffed Oreo Rabbit, with the ears and all.
I asked around and everyone said
It belonged to the neighbors, and
Just roams around. “Surprised it’s still alive,” One lady said, unconcerned.
The last guy I asked Acted as annoyed as the rest:
“Yeah, just roams around,” he said.
“Got another one,” he added, “Goes with it.”
