My Rabbit Habit

I have a rabbit habit.
I collect them constantly.
I hardly dare go shopping
in case there's one I see.
I love all bunny statues
made of pewter, wood or glass,
and rabbit-patterned kitchenware
with bunny demitasse...
I like to cuddle bunny toys
stuffed and fluffed with fur,
and even rabbit lingerie
holds quite a strong allure.
I favor rabbit ornaments
to hang around my home.
I've wondered if there's
such a thing as bunny
shaving foam...
If someone were to ask me
to a genuine masked ball,
I'd go as Br'er or Velveteen--
no contest, none at all!
OOOOOh, I have to have my bunnies.
It's a rabid habit, see?
You haven't heard the half of it.
Help me -- rabbitly!

What Is It ? 

Tall ears, 
Twinkly nose, 
Tiny tail, 
And -- hop, he goes! 
What _is_ he -- 
Can you guess? 
I feed him carrots 
And watercress. 
His ears are long, 
His tail is small -- 
And he doesn't make any 
Noise at all! 
Tall ears, 
Twinkly nose, 
Tiny tail, 
And -- hop, he goes!

The Bunny Boom 
Bunnies all around us, 
Bunnies so cute, 
Everybunny wearin' 
A little bunny suit. 
Bunnies on the rooftop, 
Bunnies on the fence, 
Pretty bunny ladies, 
Happy bunny gents. 
Bunnies in the bushes, 
Bunnies up a tree, 
Bunnies in the living room, 
Watchin' TV... 
Bunnies in the bathtub, 
What a frisky bunch, 
Bunnies in the kitchen, 
Fixing bunny lunch. 
Bunnies in the basement, 
Bunnies in their jammies, 
Saying bunny prayers. 
Thoughtful little bunnies 
Painting Easter eggs, 
Rowdy Little bunnies, 
Tapping bunny kegs... 
Bunnies by the busload, 
Bunnies by the dozens, 
Chasing bunny playmates,
 Kissing bunny cousins. 
Bunnies all around us, 
What a funny view -- 
Last spring I remember 
All we had were two!
