The Velveteen Question

Written by Ken Carman

What is real
You asked
Is it tomorrow?
Is it today?
By the way
What about
All the yesterdays
That insist on their say
Knocking on our doors
With persistent questions
Though their page
Was turned
Long ago

Little bunny
Find Comfort
In your clumsy cloth ears
Your sawdust fears
For what is inside you
Soon we shall all be
As a million velveteen rabbits
Drown in the seas
Of tomorrow
