You might have been a carrot (unless the rabbit had you for dinner)

You, magician pulled
a carrot
from your chapeau-clack
and boastfully declared
that the flawless rabbit that
you wished to see is not
a carrot
but a lustful apparition
of a parsnip
just pretending he’s
something other than
my lonesome pipe.

A bit of surrealistic poetry written in haste for Linda’s prompt at dVerse.
