Bunny

“Piece of bunny!” She ran to her mother, knowing this was wrong.
Cybil, the German Shepard had a piece of a bunny.
 
Bouncing it like a ragdoll off the end of her blood-soaked nose.
Horrified, her mother smothered the child’s eyes with her palm.
She wasn’t meant to see this violence.
 
Now grown, the child can’t remember her first dog killing the rabbit,
kept in the hutch just outside their home.
